Samba + win 2k - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi, After upgrading our client to win2k pro, I'm suddenly too stupid to set up Samba correctly on my Debian box. Is there a good site that would talk about the differences with setting up the server for w2k and win98, and also (especially) about whatever new quirks there are to know about this client? -- Juha Siltala...

    Default Samba + win 2k

    Hi,

    After upgrading our client to win2k pro, I'm suddenly too stupid to set up
    Samba correctly on my Debian box. Is there a good site that would talk
    about the differences with setting up the server for w2k and win98, and
    also (especially) about whatever new quirks there are to know about this
    client?

    Did you upgrade from NT4 or from WinX?

    I think, W9x sends passwords uncoded,
    W2k sends encoded as standard.
    If your samba used to receive unscrambled pw,
    you need to tell your client to send so.
    (administration / security settings / local security settings / ...)

    good luck

    What function fails to work properly?

    Networking works, but the client finds no host except itself in the
    Neighborhood. The workgroup is called "workgroup" on both sides. Seems
    like there's some truth to the rumors that win2k broke Samba somehow more
    generally, and registry tweaks are required, as well as maybe setting up
    the server differently than what I'm used to in the past (i.e. very easily
    getting it to work with Webmin).

    Win98SE.

    I've always used encrypted passwords, I think 98 required this as well.
    I've tried unencrypted passwords as well, with no luck.

    I'm a very lousy Windows admin, and it's not very well doented either
    :(

    Thanks. Situation: Samba works.

    Samba was handled by Debconf, which I had forgotten. This made Webmin
    settings even weirder than usual :) I took care of that and based my
    config on your file.

    Good! I'm pleased that you found some use for it.
