Windows 7 Can't Connect to Ubuntu 9.10 server/Samba

Posted on 2009-12-27

I set up Samba on a 9.10 Ubuntu server and can access the shares I set using my Ubuntu workstations with no problem. However, my Windows 7 Pro workstation can't authenticate to the server. I tried setting the local security policy as outlined by others:

Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Local Security Policy
Local Policies - Security Options
Network security: LAN Manager authentication level
Send LM & NTLM responses
Minimum session security for NTLM SSP
Disable Require 128-bit encryption

and that didn't work. The error is "Unknown login name or password" but they are correct. They work in Linux. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Authentication level needs to be changed in the registry.
    Default is 0 but I think you need to change it to 1....
