Hello,
I have a customer who is running SBS 2008 and I am having trouble connecting a Mac to it. The Mac is running OSX Tiger. Now they are using Entourage to connect to Exchange and that all works fine. The problem I believe is to do with Samba as the version that is on the Mac is 3.0.10 and after doing some research I have found that I would need to upgrade this so that is compatible with SBS 2008  as it uses NTLMv2 authentication. What I would like to know is, am I correct and how do I resolve this issue?

Thanks

OSX does not use Samba, but something else. Samba uses 445/tcp since late v2.x

Hi,
I thought SMB was Samba?

Server Message Block - a protocol.
135/tcp 137/tcp 139/tcp is old protocol version. Modern uses 445/tcp only.

I would propose using Wireshark or MS Network Monitor to dump traffic at session initiation between hosts and try to sort out from output. I have no deep knowlege of MS protocols - so I assume you looking at packet dissection is same as you looking.

Wait some time from OSX experts to come around.
Also your problem is not related to SBS setup you have, it is generic W2008 problem.
