Dear All,
Sorry about my poor english!
I am using SAMBA 3.0.8 on Fedora Core 3 box.
Otherwise, many winXP_pro_sp2 clients in my subnet.
When I connect to my samba server (use windows nethood.) from one of
It prompted a window to authorize username and password.
After given my username and password, I will saw my home directory and
public directory very well.
But~ the question happened!
When I close the nethood's window with no opening file from samba server,
and waiting more than 5 mins.
I reconnect samba server, it doesn't prompt me the authorization window
again except reboot or relogin.
What parameter I shoud add in my smb.conf for this security issue?
