Smile restricted share listings in samba domain


I'm setting up a samba primary domain controller in Debian woody and the users are logging into the domain fine and can access their shares. I would like to restrict the listings of available shares to only authenticated users of the samba domain. I know this works in a win NT4 domain, how does one do it with samba?

This is the listing I get from an nt4 pdc (belongs to a different domain than this system 'WS-072') without supplying a username or password...

root@WS-072:/etc/samba# smbclient -L //nt4pdc
added interface ip=192.168.2.45 bcast=192.168.2.255 nmask=255.255.255.0
Got a positive name query response from 192.168.2.5 ( 192.168.2.5 )
Password:
Anonymous login successful
Domain=[HMS] OS=[Windows NT 4.0] Server=[NT LAN Manager 4.0]

Sharename Type Comment
--------- ---- -------
Error returning browse list: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED
<snip>

If I do supply a username (with the -U option) and the proper password, I do get a listing of the available shares.

Now if I try the same listing without a username or password on the samba primary domain controller of the workgroup this system belongs too... I should get the same access denied for guest user share listings, but I don't - it shows all of them.

root@WS-072:/etc/samba# smbclient -L //debianpdc
added interface ip=192.168.2.45 bcast=192.168.2.255 nmask=255.255.255.0
Password:
Anonymous login successful
Domain=[LINUXTEST] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 2.2.3a-12 for Debian]

Sharename Type Comment
--------- ---- -------
tmp Disk temporary files
IPC$ IPC IPC Service (debianpdc server (Samba 2.2.3a-12 for Debian))
ADMIN$ Disk IPC Service (debianpdc server (Samba 2.2.3a-12 for Debian))


thoughts, suggestions, and of course solutions greatly appreciated. thanks.

Are you logging out with Alt-Ctrl-Del and then logging back in on the client (I am assuming the client is running MS). If not, MS has a tendancy to "keep" your logins active until you use the Alt-Ctrl-Del method to log out. Just some food for thought.

I am using my linux workstation (WS-072) to list the shares of the nt4 pdc (nt4pdc) and samba pdc (debianpdc) with the "smbclient -L \\netbiosname" command.

I have a win98 workstation to browse the network neighborhood, but to doubleclick/access the pdc of either domain, I must be authenticated to that pdc already in that domain... or else it doesn't let me see the shares -- it requests a password for IPC$. The smbclient command seems to be a lower level program, that will give me share information... so I'm using that to test. thanks though, good idea.
