Yes Sir, the old server is also using encrytped passwords and there are
no problems with that. The old server has been running for over 4 years
now without problems with SAMBA.
I also tried changing the smb.conf to specify unencryped passwords just

could not get past the password prompt (all passwords tried were valid
Thanks & take care, Vikki.
