Hi Samba,

I want use samba for file sharing between, Solaris 2.6 and NT domanins. The 
end user, NT application processes need to access the file system which on 
Solaris. So I dont want create/add every user who wants to access to 
filesystem by authenticating NT user name. I just want create a proxy user 
on samba, who ever connects, I mean irrespective of any NT login name, they 
should be able to login using this proxy user login of samba. That means, I 
don't want enter any NT user name, but by using proxy user, they should be 
able to access the file system.
