Re: Login from Win XP to NSLU2 share failing?
- Thanks for this Lennart. It may have contributed to the problem.
Sadly even after removing all the connections, I still could not
create a new one using the correct username/passwords.
Finally though I have fixed the problem by upgrading the "stock"
version of Samba on the NSLU2 to the 3.0.21b version following the
instructions at http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/Unslung/Samba
This has resolved my access denied problems and I can login to my
shares and map drives now first try.
