Samba(Solaris 10)

Solaris 10

I've samba setup for couple of users and its working fine but I need to add about 30 more users on two different subnets. Currently I added the two users pc to the host allow line and its working but I'll like to share the dir to the entire subnet and have user use samba password to gain access to the share: When I change security to "user", add the user's PC IP, and create a smbpasswd it work fine but when I change these two lines to point it to the subnet it doesn't work
1. security = user
2. hosts allow = localhost,10.145.244.0/255.255.254.0
Samba does not work with above configuration but works fine with below configuration

# Security mode. Defines in which mode Samba will operate. Possible
# values are share, user, server, domain and ads. Most people will want
# user level security. See the Samba-HOWTO-Collection for details.
   security = SHARE

# This option is important for security. It allows you to restrict
# connections to machines which are on your local network. The
# following example restricts access to two C class networks and
# the "loopback" interface. For more examples of the syntax see
# the smb.conf man page
   hosts allow = localhost,10.40.145.103,10.40.146.77,10.40.145.83

# If you want to automatically load your printer list rather
# than setting them up individually then you'll need this
 How can I setup samba share for a bunch of users on two subnet to map the dir?

Any help is highly appreciated.

I am not sure about this, but I suspect that samba may not accept the old style subnet mask. Instead of putting "10.145.244.0/255.255.254.0",
try using "10.145.244.0/23".
