Do you use encrypted or unencrypted passwords in /etc/smb.conf?

Having problems with mounting using smbmount. The drive is market as
"shared" and is visible and indeed browsable from other windows machines.
However trying to mount via commands (with correct username password

    mount -t smbfs -o "username=abc,password=xyz" //pc-1001/d /mnt/backup


    18921: session setup failed: ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess (Access denied.)
    SMB connection failed

smbclient returns:

Got a positive name query response from ( )
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE
I try all different mount commands, it's not that, it still returns the
same error as above. As mentioned, other clients on the network have no
problem seeing the share, it just can't be seen from Linux. Anyone?
