Accessing Samba share from windows domain


Hi, I've got a development webserver running Fedora Core 6, and I'm trying to make the webroot accessable via samba.

My samba config is as follows:
Code:
[global]
workgroup = WORKGROUP
netbios name = FC6VM

[htdocs]
path = /wwwroot/htdocs
comment = webserver document root
public = no
read only = no
valid users = htdocs

I've created the htdocs user, used smbpasswd to set the windows password, and given it read/write access to /wwwroot/htdocs.

The windows machine i'm trying to connect from is part of a windows domain. When I try to access the share from windows, the auth box pops up, but when I type "htdocs" as the user, it automatically tries to resolve "htdocs" to a windows domain user, i.e. <domain>\htdocs which doesn't exist.

What can I type as the username to prevent this happening? Is there a htdocs@xxx type username or similar format?

Try adding
Code:
 security=user
to the [global] definitions and restart samba

Changing the share name to something other than the same as the username seemed to fix it. i.e. [webroot]
