Hi There,

I have samba up and running properly with windows 95, but am having some problems now that I've installed windows 2000. I finally got so that I can see the Linux machine in Explorer, but now when I click on it, I'm prompted for a username/password. I enter valid userinfo for my account on the Linux box, but it is refused (the popup prompt simply reappears). Does anyone know what I can do about this?

My smb.conf file includes these settings:

        encrypt passwords = yes
        wins support = yes
        os level = 34
        domain master = yes
        local master = yes
        preferred master = yes
        domain logons = yes
        unix password sync = yes
        smb passwd file = /usr/bin/smbpasswd

Any advice is greatly appreciated.
