Thanks for the help and this is something that I will not soon forget

>> Hello All,
>> I hope that you are all doing well. I have been trying to get
>> Samba setup and running on my Redhat 7.2 box so that users on
>> machines can login and be connected to their directory.
>> The problem is that no matter what I try, I can see the Samba
>> server from the Windows machine, but it keeps telling me that
>> the password was not recognized and is the same linux password
>> for each user.
>> I cannot even see a general open directory on the Samba server
>> and have tried playing around with just about all of the default
>> settings in the smb.conf and am now starting back with a fresh
>> smb.conf file. that came with the rpm install.
>> Does anyone have any ideas as to what might be going on here and
>> how I might be able to fix it?
>> Any ideas on the configuration setting would be greatly
