[Samba] Access Samba from Windows 3.1

I'm maintaining for historical reasons a couple of Windows 3.1 and 
Windows 95 installations. These run actually on Vmware. With the most 
recent version of Samba, I'm noticing that Microsoft Windows does not 
connect any more, and I get "authentication error".

How do I need to configure Samba in order to connect to the latest Samba 
server again? Unfortunately, I can't change the configuration of these 
old Windows installations. Hopefully, there are some options that I can 
write into smb.conf in order to re-enable old style Windows networking.

Thanks for your help in advance. :-)

Best Regards,
