Hello guys,

I have set up Samba after reading a lot of docs and yet I am having
issues. I can not view/mount my shares from my Windows 2k server.

smbclient //ip/share -U kkcarter%password works. I get in right away.

Please note that I did add the machine with a dollar sign as a doc pointed
out using smbpasswd -m -a machine$

afterwards, I added the username of the person logged in the windows box
and made sure the smb password is the same as the one in Windows.
yet, it doesn't work.

here's some (hopefully) helpful output from the logs:

  Defaulting to Lanman password for kkcarter

In my config, passwords are set to encrypt, security is set to user. W2k
is configured by default so plain passwords shoult not be on.

Why is it failing ?

Any input is greatly appreciated.
