In windows world, username is machinename\username.

So, if the Vista box is named mypc and your username is fred,

The username you enter should be mypc\fred.


Not sure if you have a freebsd password problem.


Anyway, just more info to help you solve your problem.

If the OP is using SAMBA in a FreeBSD environment, then it is most
certainly a FBSD related problem.

In which case, if their users are as closed minded as you appear to be,
they will refer the OP to the FreeBSD and/or Samba mailing list,
depending on which list he contacts.
