[Samba] Samba session setup STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE

I have two Linux 2.6 based devices that cannot talk properly to each other
on a Samba session setup.

(those two devices are Buffalo Terastation Pro II rackmount TS-RHTGL/R5 F/W
1.33 and Request Media Server F Series, v5.3.1.3478)

Basically, the NAS provides with a share that Request application uses to
store media content. The problem we experience is that the NAS yet refuses a
SMB client, while anonymous sessions are enabled on NAS. The NAS replies
with STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE (0x6d) on a samba client Session Setup AndX
Request by Request server. The client sends \guest as SMB username and some
non-zero length (24 characters) password hash in SMB password field (when
blank username and password are supplied to Request applications as access

I suspect the NAS improperly handles guest access (probably guest section
misconfiguration?), anyone can give guidance what to investigate further?
