Not sure if this will solve it, I just configured samba on my local FreeBSD v4.4 box to serve as a massive file server on my home network. It was giving me fits and starts until I configured it to do NT1 security protocol, then it suddenly all started working. I synced the passwords between the BSD box and my local Windows network and it all works very nicely. In fact, the files on the BSD box stream noticeably faster than off my Win2k Server (the PDC). All of the clients are WinXP boxes and have no problem streaming music, movies, etc. off samba. The only problem is that there are a lot of PAM authentication failure notices on my BSD box. I haven't had time to look into it, but since it works fine, it can wait till the long weekend.

I've done this previously with another server, but I can't seem to get it to work this time. If I turn off password encryption, then I pass all the tests in the DIAGNOSIS file, but Win2k obviously won't allow the connection without encrypted passwords. If I turn encryption on, I pass any test that doesn't involve a password. I created the password file with make_smbpasswd. I also tried importing a password file used with an earlier version of Samba, and editing the usernames and user ids. There is no ENCRYPTION file included with this port, and I can't find any other instructions for setting up the password file. I've googled and searched, and can't find anything that goes beyond what I already know. If someone could point me to instructions for setting this up, I'd be grateful.
