I can evaluate different options: I can make a chrooted secondary samba (on
a different IP) only to serve Windows 3.11 (or a VM with a minimal linux
inside, eventually) if this could solve my problem. What parameters I should
try to put to "no" to see if I get the 3.11 to connect? I have a test enviroment
so I can try without disrupting service.
