[Samba] win/linux connect problem

First of all, if I can you give an advice, upgrade your samba config to
2.2.5 and be sure installing all latests patches on your w2k station ( sp3
now ).

In your config file, workgroup must be defined with the same name as in your
w2k station. You can also remove logon path. This is only for configuring
Samba as a PDC.

For the user declaration, it is better, for a security reason, not to use
passwords coming from your /etc/passwd file. So use better smbpasswd to
create passwords specific to samba. For this, you have to change "security =
SHARE" with "security = user".

and finally, I don't know what this is "map to guest = Bad User" try without

> hi..
> I have samba 2.2.1a on Mandrake 8.1, 2.4.17.  My problem is a user from
remote Win2k workstation can't see my shares when he wants to access my PC
using my hostname.  When accessing using my ip address, it works..  The
error message in W2K is 'This user is not authorized to log in from this
station' - or something like that..
> Here's a part of my config.  The same (or almost the same) config works on
another linux, so I'm desperate with this one..
