[Samba] Serious grief with a Samba connection

The server is on a Sun box (uname says SunOS 5.8)
I do not know what version of samba is running
For the last year and a half, I have made a daily connection from a
Windows XP box with the following command:
new use G: \\server\volume /USER:userid password
This makes a "G" network drive that serves the purpose.
About a month ago, network folks upstream from us spewed a bunch of
policy updates that caused serious trouble. The worst being mine.
Now, if I try the same command on an XP box, the command executes
successfully, the G-drive appears and then blinks to say
"Disconnected Network Drive"
Because some of our team use them, I tried from a Windows 2000 box.
The same command responds with :
System Error 1240 has occurred. The account is not authorized to log
in from this station"
I checked the smb.conf file and found that the samba server is
configured for encrypted passwords. This error makes no sense.
The local network folks are convinced this is a Unix problem.
Any clues out there for this clueless one ?
