Can anyone tell me how to fetch the session username of a request in the 
smb.conf file? The %U doesn't seem to work anymore in version 3.0.2a. 
The %u option gives me the guest account name ( the share I want to 
cannect to is a fax share and is accessible by guest). If I put in our 
oulder samba version the %U option gives me the session name. The 
request from the client to the fax is not  done as guest because I can 
see the username in a tcpdump of the samba request. Is there a new 
option in the smb.conf file to fetch the session username?
