I am debbuging my Kubuntu Linux to Windows XP Professional Service Pack
1 and 2 connection using Andrew Tridgell's excellent diagnosis.txt.
The test fails on test 5 which should return a list of available shares
from the server.
From the XP command prompt:
net view \\kinda
System error 5 has occurred.
Access is denied.
I can't see why this error should be happening.
Bother users have the same user name.
The linux password is encrypted but I don't know about the WXP password.
