I have Samba succesfully up and running on a RH9 machine which is in a Windows domain. I can access a share on the linux machine using shell, so I know it's working.
When I try to connect to a share using an XP machine on the domain, an authentication box pops up asking for a username and password. So far, so good. Why on earth is my username and password (the same as I used in shell) not accepted?
When XP-based authentication pops up for various things, I have to enter the username in the format domain\username. Could the XP authentication popup somehow be mangling the data because it expects it in this format.
