Earlier tonight, I sent the following message to the list, and
recieved several responses, all of which were very helpful.
I found the following solution in the mailing list archive using the
search feature (it does work yall).
For Windows 2000 machines that are unable to connect to Samba
Shares, the following registry hack will solve your problem:
Add value EnablePlainTextPassword = 1
This works, I just verified it on 3 seperate machines.
I have a Samba 2.0.7 server running on FreeBSD 4.0 Release. It
works flawlessly, with one exception. When I try and connect my
Windows 2000 Professional workstation to a samba share,
windows 2000 returns the following error message:
System Error 1240 has occured.
The account is not authorized to log in from this station.
I am using the following command to connect (from a command
net use m: \\otis\charles
This command works flawlessly from all of my win98 and win95
Below is a copy of my smb.conf file:
# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from UNKNOWN (0.0.0.0)
# Date: 2000/06/27 00:59:46
# Global parameters
workgroup = workgroup
log file = /var/log/log.%m
max log size = 50
interfaces = 192.168.0.4
netbios name = otis
dns proxy = No
server string = SambaServer
comment = Home Directories
read only = No
browseable = No
comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/samba
print ok = Yes
browseable = No
browsable = Yes
comment = Music
write list = @peters
create mode = 777
directory mode = 777
writable = yes
path = /usr/sshare/music
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
