hmmm… perhaps it’s time for a FAQ
samba 2.0.7 is linked with the fixed crypt lib from QSSL. (I think this
is mentioned in the accompanying readme file.) Make sure your system is
patched with this security patch. You can download this patch from the
updates site from QSSL. (You need to have access to this area, which
would be the case if you registered your QNX4 license.) Note that if you
patch your system, you also need to apply the other required patches for
login, tcp/ip, qwindows, etc… (in other words, all programs that
If you don’t want to patch your system, there’s a workaround: try to
create a new model account (perhaps on a test system which is already

encrypted passwords). Manually copy this encrypted password to your
current system’s shadow file.
If all of this doesn’t work, then perhaps there’s a configuration error

I’ve just installed samba 2.0.7, which I got from the QNX website. I’m
trying to use swat, the web admin tool for samba. When I point my web

perhaps i have a deeper authentication problem with it all?
