My samba server/client works fine for basic browsing with accasional problems 
connecting to other workgroups or computers. Windows computers can see me and 
also connect to me. Unfortunately, as soon as i try to send a message to 
myself I get the following.
jmak://home/jmak# smbclient -M jmak
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
message start: ERRSRV - ERRaccess (The requester does not have  the  necessary
access  rights  within  the specified  context for the requested function. 
The context is defined by the TID or the UID.)

If i try to a windows computer running Win2k with username "mindlessdemon", 
the reply is as follows 

jmak://home/jmak# smbclient -M mindlessdemon
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Got a positive name query response from ( )
Connected. Type your message, ending it with a Control-D
sent 10 bytes

Can anyone please help me. It's been troubling me for quite a long time and 
keeps me from my studies.
Yours gratefully
