It would be better to send queries like this to the samba list. 

My guess would be that the NT machine you are using as the RAS server
does not accept plaintext passwords (at least for this service). I
don't use RAS so I cannot verify this. You say you set the key to 0
and restarted but it still does not work. What machine did you 
restart? What is the exact failure? Saying it doesn't work isn't much
