Eventually someone is going to need to do a proper network trace and
deep dive on the Samba code to follow exactly what happens against both
servers and see how our responses differ from Windows.
Showing that Samba negotiates different network protocols, protection
levels etc would be a good start.
I've seen so many mails on this topic, so this isn't going to resolve
itself by just users chatting with users. I suggest someone engages
one of our fine Samba Commercial Support providers familiar with this
area to get to the bottom of this.
