Windows Mobile can't access Linux Samba


Hi all,

I currently have 2 systems (Redhat Linux Enterprise AS4 and Fedora Core 5) both have Samba enabled. The big difference between these 2 system is that the Linux Samba is authenticated through ADS whereas the Fedora system is done through Share level security.

My issue right now is that we have a few Symbol MC50 scanners which runs Windows Mobile 2003 OS. And it cannot access the shares on Linux. It can only access the share on Fedora system.

Now the 2 Sambas can both be accessible from a windows machine. After a few searches on Google, my primary suspicion is that the Windows Mobile 2003 device cannot transmit secure login information hence the ADS security for the Linux system cannot authenticate and grant access. Whereas the Fedora system uses plain text security.

Is there a patch for the Windows Mobile system where this can be remedied? Or is there a more in depth configuration on the Linux to allow the mobile device to connect?

Thanks for reading.

krb5.conf

[logging]
default = FILE:/var/log/krb5libs.log
kdc = FILE:/var/log/krb5kdc.log
admin_server = FILE:/var/log/kadmind.log

[libdefaults]
default_realm = ALLSTATEFLORAL.COM
dns_lookup_realm = false
dns_lookup_kdc = false

[realms]
ALLSTATEFLORAL.COM = {
kdc = alldc.allstatefloral.com
admin_server = alldc.allstatefloral.com
default_domain = allstatefloral.com
}

[domain_realm]
.allstatefloral.com = ALLSTATEFLORAL.COM
allstatefloral.com = ALLSTATEFLORAL.COM

[kdc]
profile = /var/kerberos/krb5kdc/kdc.conf

[appdefaults]
pam = {
debug = false
ticket_lifetime = 36000
renew_lifetime = 36000
forwardable = true
krb4_convert = false
}


And I don't have a directory /etc/ldap, and not sure where the slapd.conf is.

Since the setup is not working you should read this article because if you are missing that directory and file then you will not be able to authenticate.
