Good Morning,


I understand you provide support for the Samba project.


I am searching for some FREE help solving what I think is a very simple
problem for an experience Samba professional.


I am running Samba 2.2.12 on an old SCO OpenServer 5.0.6 box.


I cannot update to a more recent version of Samba as this is the last
version that will run on SCO OpenServer 5.0.6.


I have some programs which call SMBCLIENT to 'put' files onto a Windows


The Windows Server is running 2008 R2.


The problem I have is that I need to disable the 'guest' account on the
Windows box and when I do disable it, the SMBCLIENT command fails.


How can I get SMBCLIENT to use another account  and what properties does it
need to have?


Your help would be gratefully received.


Kind Regards


Dave Nolan
