Hi Andrew,

Thanks a lot for the prompt response. 

This is the same initial setup being used from more than 3 years, no one of the users reported any issues until now as they were able to access the shares with their unix passwords.

The share is successfully being accessed from a particular subnet (10.77.*.*) alone with same settings, but not from any other subnets. And there is no firewall in between.

I would note that 'encrypt passwords = no' is pretty well unsupported client-side these days.  I don't know if this is your issue, but you should try setting a password with smbpasswd and removing this option.

I hope this helps,
