use encrypted mode or import the "EnablePlainTextPassword" reg key on
your workstation (you can find this in the source tar)

	Onderwerp: [Samba] can't connect from windows

	Hello all,
	I've setup samba Version 2.2.0a on Slackware 8.0
	# uname -a
	Linux slackware 2.4.5 #6 Fri Jun 22 01:38:20 PDT 2001 i686
	I start samba as root from a console as:
	/usr/sbin/smbd -D -d10 -l /var/adm/smblogs/log -s
	/usr/sbin/nmbd -D -d1 -s /etc/samba/smb.conf
	In smb.conf I have:
	   comment = mystuff
	   valid users = nigels
	   path = /usr1
	   read only = no
	   public = yes
	I can connect to this share from another Linux machine on my
	However not from Windows 2000 or NT.
	(eg using: "net use F: \\slackware\files /user:nigels nigel" )
	Windows NT reports: The account is not authorised to connect
from this station.
	Windows 2000: The network location cannot be reached.
	from both windows machines i can do this:
	C:\>nbtstat -a slackware
	       Table de noms NetBIOS de la machine distante
	   Nom                Type         Etat
	SLACKWARE      <00>  UNIQUE      Inscrit
	SLACKWARE      <03>  UNIQUE      Inscrit
	SLACKWARE      <20>  UNIQUE      Inscrit
	..__MSBROWSE__.<01>  GROUP       Inscrit
	WORKGROUP      <00>  GROUP       Inscrit
	WORKGROUP      <1B>  UNIQUE      Inscrit
	WORKGROUP      <1D>  UNIQUE      Inscrit
	WORKGROUP      <1E>  GROUP       Inscrit
	Adresse MAC = 00-00-00-00-00-00
	C:\>nbtstat -c
	              Table de nom de cache distant NetBIOS
	    Nom               Type        Adresse d'hôte   Vie [sec]
	SLACKWARE      <00>  UNIQUE        420
	WORKGROUP      <1B>  UNIQUE        420
	"Slackware" is the hostname of the remote machine running samba.
	Any ideas/suggestions on how to get this going ?
	PS: The end of the samba.smdb logs look like this:
