I've got an annoying little problem with Samba and Win2k. I installed a Win2k
Pro client on the network and set it to use plain text passwords and join the
The username and password of the user on the win2k box are the same as the
account in /etc/passwd on the linux box. But after logging in, when trying to
reconnect the mapped drives the windows box says:
"Incorrect password or unknown username for: \\linuxbox\share"
After typing in the password (the same password as just entered to log into
windows) the box can access the mapped drives with no problems. Has anyone
else seen this? Its not like I can't access the shares, its just I have to
put in the password again after logging into Windows.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
