When using Network neighbourhood, we do see the samba share. When clicking on 
it, it prompts us for 'Connect as' and 'password'. When entering the unix login 
and password, it returns an error message ' \\SambaServer\\share is not 
accessible; the account is not authorized to login from this station'.

I have atached the smb.conf file. Thankyou again.

Hi Samba Gurus,
This is the first time I am posting a question to this list so please forgive my 
ignorance as my experience on windows is very limited.
I have users  who are unable to connect to the Samba server from a windows NT4.0 
machine ( service pack4) when configured as either Domain or workgroup.  However 
the users can succesfully connect when they are logged on a Windows95 machine, 
configured as a Domain. Their PC logins are held on a windows NT4.0 server 
machine, and they all have logins on the Samba box ( running Solaris 2.6).
smbd -V => Version 2.0.6
 Please could anyone help. Thankyou.
