samba password w/ 98
Posted on 1999-10-27
I previously set up a Samba server on a LAN made up of a few
linux boxes and 2 win boxes (98 and NT). I set up samba on one of the linux boxes for file serving to all of the machines. I am having trouble with the win98 machine, when i goto the network neighborhood and open the partition on the samba server i am prompted for a password, i enter the password for that user's login on the samba server and get an access denied. I was wondering if this has to do with some sort of password encryption that 98 is trying to do but smaba doesn't support.
