You'll need to set "encrypt passwords" option to "no" in the smb.conf file
and hack your win2k client to send passwords in plain text (Local Security
Settings/Local Policies/Security Options/Send unencrypted password ...).
I'm not sure if this is wat you want. You can keep /etc/passwd en smbpasswd
in sync using the "unix password sync = yes" option.

>Hi All,

I want my samba to authenticate users from UNIX /etc/passwd instead of 
smbpasswd file when they access the samba shares from win2k. What parameter

should I define to make it happen.
