thanx for your reply but iam not agree with you coz i think that 
"Encrypt Passwords = yes" option is used  just when other NT machines want to 
connect to your samba server coz NT by default using encrypted pass so i have 
to enable passwd encreption on my samba server and define the encreption 
passwd file for it . 
but iam asking about the reversed operation . when iam tring to connect to NT 
machine from smbclient command the passwd is encrypted as well or not ? 
"iam tring to be sure about it coz i dont want to let someone sniff my NT 
passwd :)) "
thanx alot
