[Samba] Problem with Samba Authentication

Hi, i have installed a PDC authenticated with LDAP in a network with Linux and 
Win XP hosts. My intention is to authenticate (throught TLS) every user or at 
least the machines wich are trying to get access to the resources. LDAP and 
Samba are in the same machine so the communication is by the 389 port. 
Besides, LDAP communication with the network is by ldap ssl. 

I have tried a lot of configurations, but i have not found the right one. I 
want that every Win host sends a TLS certificate to Samba in order to the 
server to authenticate them, and if it fails, the user could not log into the 

I have to say that with Linux hosts it is working the way i want. So the TLS 
configuration in LDAP is right.

Anyone knows if i can get this? or even better, Can anyone tell me wich would 
be the basic configuration options to get it?

Greetings and apologizes for my English
