Hi all,

i just installed samba 2.0.7 and no i'm having a prblem accessing it.
First here are my config files:

character set=ISO8859-1
lock directory=/usr/local/samba/var/locks/
netbios name=server
domain master=yes
username map=/usr/local/samba/lib/

service type=fileservice
guest ok=yes
read only=no
root=administrator spiegel spiegel.harald

my Linux is a SuSE 7.0
the clients are one W2K Pro and two Win98 SE Boxes.

Now i got samba up and running.

On the linux machine i can connect and transfer files to the samba server
itself and also to the windows machines.
But when I try to go the other way and connect from the Windows PCs to samba
i get an Error:
"With this account you cannot connect from this machine" (I translated the
error message by hand from German, so it may read diffrent in the original).
I think that i have a problem with user accounts or something.

Please help me this is really urgent.

Thanks in advance

Cu Ulrich
