Hi All,

    Fedora 26

Workstations (5 of them):
    XP Pro SP3

I set all five of my customer XP workstations to

Send NTLMv2 response only\\refuse LM and NTLM

and turned off (smb.conf)

   lanman auth = yes
   ntlm auth = yes

And had to turn it right back on as the customer's
Xerox Workcentre 3550 multifunction printer scanner
requires it

What are the security ramification to Samba?

Many thanks,
