i have a program that basically uses a function from samba to determin if the username and pass are valid on the given windows nt domain sadly this worked once and has since stoped working ( code snip at end of message )
when its valid it returns 0 and invalid it returns 1
the function is Valid_User (user, pass, server, backup, domain)
now from the code i can make out, the function should return a message of some sort ( am i right? ) i would like to print/echo on the screen any information given out from the vailid_user function
how would i go about doing this should i read it in to a varible first then put that on screen or can i take it directly from the function?
i am a bit of a newbie at the so please could you explain as much as you can
please please could some one help me ?!
i have looked around in valid.c and found the error 'codes' ( if you like )
i have re-written the program slightly and figured out that the Samba is having trouble with connecting to the server thats why its failing but i am now unsure if its a config error in samba or if its something else
