The samba share I need to access from the trusted domain has been configured
with "guest ok=yes" parameter.     Some of the files are world-readable
since they do not contain any restricted information.


So even though authenticated  access fails with smb client


#smbclient -U " WINDOMAIN\winuser" -L sambapdc

session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE



anonymous access with smbclient is OK


#smbclient -N-L sambapdc

Anonymous login successful

Domain=[SAMBADOMAIN] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.0.37]
