Hello ,
I have just recently installed Samba 2.2.1a on Solaris 8 .

share I created as users .

In the shares configuration I have allowed only specific users.

When I try to connect from NT , I type the Machine name and then it shows
me users share , till now it's fine .

Now When I enter some user name , it says network name is not valid . If I
don't specify username
then it connects with some username by which once I connected to this
server .

Why it connects with that user name ?

may this is very simple problem , but please help what settings  here is my
smb.conf .
