Subject:   Upgraded Samba and Can't Connect with Win XP
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
I upgraded samba to 3.0.25a from 3.0.24.  Now I can't connect with 
Windows XP clients however smbclient both locally and remotely works 
just fine.  Basically when connecting from Windows XP, I see the 
connection in log.smbd and then it's immediately closed.  See this snip:

[2007/07/28 14:36:25, 1] smbd/service.c:make_connection_snum(1033)
  bigdaddy ( connect to service Archive initially as user 
<user name> (uid=0, gid=1001) (pid 82696)
[2007/07/28 14:36:25, 1] smbd/service.c:close_cnum(1230)
  bigdaddy ( closed connection to service Archive

The Windows machine was working fine with Samba before the upgrade.  Any 
ideas what changed?  I've read UPDATING and the samba docs but see 
nothing that addresses my symptoms.  Google hasn't helped either.
