Hi, I've just set up a samba server and have a few problems which I'm
hoping some of you may have run in to before... :-)
I want to authenticate against the unix passwd file, and this works fine
from NT/Win2K which allows you to specify a username/passwd. However for
Win95/98 you can only specify a passwd. A workaround is to change your
windows username & passwd to the same as the unix box, but this is ugly.
Are there any other ways of doing this with authentication against
Also does anyone know how to log out of a samba share from an NT/2000 box
so that you can connect to the same samba share again with a different
username/passwd? So far the only way I've found of doing this is to logoff
windows, and back on again. Obviously a right pain...
