A friend recently had this problem and it was due to capitalization. IIRC, the username in the nsmb.conf file needs to be in all caps, whereas the username that is given to the server is actually lowercase, or vice versa. It was found by a google search and just due to caps alone. Try toggling the caps, I know, odd fix, but it worked for my friend --Tim _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
