Make sure that samba has a passwd file to reference. man smbpasswd.
I tried 'security = user' in my smb.conf file without
client and server signing on Linux and windwos boxes and connected with no problem.
I then changed to "client signing = mandatory" and "server signing = mandatory" in smb.conf.
I also changed the WinXP box to client signing enabled and server signing enabled in the security options of the administrative tools.
Then on the WinXP box it asked for User ID and Password but entry of user/password was not accepted.
