Angry SAMBA packet signing

I have set up client and server packet signing on my WinXP machine and also setup in my smb.conf file on my Linux Enterprise box to mandatory client and server packet signing. I still get the message that the connection from windows to the Linux machine is not allowed.
I believe I need to set up something else in my smb.conf file on the Linux box. Any ideas. I have security = shares.

Try 'security = user' in smb.conf.

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.

Any Ideas?


samba, signing
