Apparently the smbpasswd file doesn't care about mixed-case passwords.
I've entered smbpasswd and changed my password to: MaEs.
Then I did: smbclient //server/share -U werner and provided the wright
password: MaEs. I managed to get access.
BUT when I entered "maes" as password, it also worked. Same story with

Same story in Windows.
Can anyone confirm this issue?

Thanks alot,
