I'm being told that when winbindd is used to connect a Linux client to
an NT PDC, that encrypted passwords cannot be used in transport. In
other words that passwords are sent over the wire in clear text.
I find this surprising. Nor can i find documentation of this assertion
anywhere. Can anyone definitively say this is true or false?
