Hello everyone,

I'm rather new to Linux and Samba, and the following problem is just
beyond me.
Situation is as follows:

I've a Linux system, named Linux, running Samba 2.0.5a comming with Corel
Linux. IP Address is
My NT system is called Hades, running NT4 SP 5, IP Address is

Now, I can access my shared resources FROM Linux ON NT. Works fine. I can
as well access my shared resources FROM Linux ON Linux. But I cannot
access anything FROM NT on Linux.

I've enabled the encrypted-password support in samba via the
encrypt-passwords=yes option _and_ I've enabled plaintext password support
in NT.

Anyone any suggestion? I've included a few config-files, error-messages
and the like.

Thanks alot,
