If anyone can help with this, please help.

When i try to connect to my SAMBA server from windows 2000 professional i
get the following message:

This is the windows DOS screen:
D:\>net use * \\samba\shared /user:root rootpassword
System error 1240 has occurred.

The account is not authorized to log in from this station.

My smb.conf looks like this:


# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name
   workgroup = seven
   hosts allow = 192.168.1. 127.

comment = the shared folder
path = /shared
writable = yes
create mode = 0770
directory mode = 2770
browseable = yes

And I had mounted the shared folder by typing:
mount -t smbfs -o username=root,password=rootpassword  //samba/shared
