[Samba] Machines connecting to IPC$

My current set-up :-

I have a Samba 2.2.2 server running on Solaris 2.6. This server is set-up to
unencrypted plain text passwords. 
I have just created a test server running Samba 2.2.2 on Mandrake Linux 6.0
to try
and test it with encrypted passwords.
There are also a number of NT domains on the same network and connected via
the WAN.

The problem I have is that when I start the test server of the Linux box NT
start connecting to the IPC$ share. These same machines do not connect to
the Samba
server running on the Solaris machine. The only real difference is that the
machine uses encrypted passwords and the Solaris one does not.

Is this normal behaviour? 
Will my Samba server with encrypted passwords interfere with the NT domains?

Why are the NT machines connecting to my IPC$?

Any help would be gratefully accepted.
