I've been using samba for some time now on my linux laptop, although
only scratching the surface of it's full capabilities. I basically use
samba for printing and accessing our domain file servers. So, I know
relatively little about the in-depth configuration of samba
Every time I need to access a domain service I need to supply an
authfile/usename/password to the smbmount/smbclient program. Okay, not
too much of a problem now that I can use the authfile, I was curious
though is it possible for samba to simply log me in to the domain just
once as I would do in windows? When I access file shares etc... within
Windows, I'm not prompted to authenticate myself every time.
I've seen several articles describing how to login to a domain as an
administrator - I'm not an administrator, just a plain 'ole user. Can
this "persistent login" be established or do the authentication
mechanisms within windows prevent me from doing this?
