Description David Billinghurst 2005-08-22 19:14:04 UTC
I am running a RHEL3 x86_64 server with samba-3.0.x, x={9,14,20}
with security=server.

I can connect to this server using win2k clients and samba smbclient.
I can't connect from winXP SP2 clients.

When I installed samba-2.2.12 on th server, and use the same smb.conf 
file, I can connect from winXP SP2 clients.

I would really recommend testing 'security = domain'.
You might also want to disable spnego in smb.conf
as an additional test for 'security = server' (which has 
been deprecated btw).

Comment 2 Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2005-10-12 13:04:22 UTC
closing due to deprecated nature of security=server.
