We are having difficulty connecting to a samba server using windows XP pro.
Plain text is enabled and we can search for the server on the network, but
as soon as we map a drive to it, it asks for a username and password. We
enter this and then it asks for a password relating to a guest account.
Can anyone help me with why it defaults to the guest account?
