I'm running into the same thing - but I'm going thru the File Explorer
and trying to Map a drive manually. It started when I went up to 2.2.4.

> Hello all. I am new to Samba, so forgive me if this is a
> stupid question, but I have been unable to figure this out.
> I have a Red Hat 7.1 box (kernel 2.4.9) with the Samba
> 2.2.4-2 RPM installed. I am trying to configure it so that
> Windows 2000 machines within my company's Windows domain can
> access it. Before diving into anything exotic, I am trying
> to get this to work without requiring any kind of
> authentication. So, this is my smb.conf file:
> workgroup = DEVGROUP
> security = share
> netbios name = skunkworx
> comment = test share
> path = /export/samba/test
> read only = no
> guest only = yes
> guest account = nobody
> The relevant directory, /export/samba/test, does exist, and
> has 777 permissions.
> When Samba is running, SKUNKWORX shows up in a listing of the
> Windows domain, but all attempts to access the share have
> failed with the error message "\\Skunkworx is not accessible.
> The account is not authorized to log in from this station."
> An Internet search led me to believe this problem usually

> default, which a Samba set-up like mine would not support.
> However, because I am trying to bypass the use of passwords
> altogether (for now), I do not believe this is my problem.
> Still, I went ahead and tried the suggested registry hack,
> enabling Win2K to use plain-text passwords. No dice.
> I can supply the dump from testparm, and I can also supply
> the logs from smbd when I tried this with debug level 3, if
> any of that will help.
