I have installed Samba 2.0.7 (downloaded from QUICS) and it works fine
so long as I do not have to use passwords to authenticate users.
Some of the parameters I use in my smb.conf are:
security = share
null passwords = Yes
encrypt passwords = No
comment = Test
path = /tmp
I have tried all tests suggested in DIAGNOSIS.txt, even more extensive
tests from the ‘Using Samba’ book, read various FAQs and still cannot
solve the problem.
If I use smbclient locally, I can connect if specifying username that
does not have password. If I specify a username which requires
password, then I get ‘ERRbadpw’. I also get ‘Incorrect password’ from
net use under Win95 client.
As far as I can gather from looking at the log file, passwords supplied
by Win95 client are not encrypted. And I had the same Win95 client
connecting to the older version of Samba (1.9.16).
