Like I stated in the first post, it is not accepting the password for
"xamindar". It spits back that it is wrong and in the logs I see
"create_connection_server_info failed: NT_STATUS_WRONG_PASSWORD". The
password is correct. It works fine with security set to user. I have
tested with the mount command in linux and with a Vista machine, neither
are able to connect.

When this is set it will ALWAYS connect as guest because it is not
accepting any valid passwords.

Thanks for the recommendations.

Am I missing something vital when security is set to share?
