Hi Everyone

I'm new to samba and I have been trying in vein to find a solution to 
this problem. I am setting up a linux samba server as a domain member 
server. It is part of the MAINT workgroup. Winbind and Samba 
authenticate correctly. The issue arises when I try to limit the users 
who are allowed to use a my share folder.

Most of the information I have lookup seem to say that I should set up 
the Valid Users directive like this :

valid users  = '@MAINT\nkassis', '@MAINT\aburns'

Of course this dosen't work. Can anyone point me to a place where I can 
find information about this or any indepth explanation of how to define 
users in this directive ?
