I have a situation that I don't quite understand.  I have a new Windows 7 64-bit machine, and I am trying to re-connect to several Samba shares that I have defined.  These still work fine when accessed from my old XP box.
However, i can only connect to the shares on Ubuntu now.  The shares on Red Hat (an older distro, to be sure) do not allow me to connect; I am getting a 'wrong password' error.  Apparently, something newer in the Ubuntu box is allowing the connection.  How do I update the Red Hat machine (or loosen the Win 7 machine) to get this to work?
Thanks.

On the Windows 7 machine, you need to change some security settings.  Follow the below instructions:
Control Panel => Administrative Tools => Local Security Policy
Local Policies => Security Options



Network security: LAN Manager authentication level
Send LM & NTLM responses

Network security: Minimum session security for NTLM SSP
Disable Require 128-bit encryption

PS: Above settings are also required to allow WIN7 to connect to WIN2000 server or WIN98 shares.
