[Samba] Incorrect User/Password

I'm trying to connect to my homes folder.  I can see
it when I browse in windows 2000.  However, when I
click on the folder I get a logon window.  When I
enter the username and password, it says it's invalid.

The smb.conf file was taken from a simular working
I'm using Ver 3.0-alpha17 on FreeBSD 4.6.  I'm logging
into the window2k box with the same username/password
as on Samba.  The windows2k user/pass combination is
authenticated thru a domain, if that matters.

Any ideas?


Clip from my smb.conf file:
workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = Samba BSD ver %v
hosts deny = ALL
hosts allow = 164.56.
log file = /var/log/samba/samba-log.%m
lock directory = /var/lock/samba
password level = 8
username level = 8
encrypt passwords = yes
security = user
smb passwd file = /etc/smbpasswd

comment = UNIX home directory space
path = %H
writeable = yes
valid users = %S
create mode = 0600
directory mode = 0700
locking = no

Here are the wierd log file entries:

[2002/08/12 13:23:09, 0]
