[1999/10/21 12:26:51, 5] lib/util_sock.c:read_with_timeout(403)
  read_with_timeout: timeout read. EOF from client.
[1999/10/21 12:26:51, 100] smbd/chgpasswd.c:talktochild(263)
  talktochild: chatbuf=[*1):*] responsebuf=[Setting password for user: 
  Password request denied.

The request fails almost immediately.

One think which has changed is that recently we started getting 
clients logging in from the other side of an ISDN link connected to

WINS server. No WinNT anywhere).
