From brianwu :
I am using Vista RC1. I found a problem when i connect to my linux server. It prompted me to insert account and pw. After I keyed in the account/pw. It said that my account/password was incorrect.
However, when I was using WinXP connecting to the linux, it worked (using the same acc and pw). I tried to disable the Vista firewall, it also failed..
If i connect from the Vista to the linux using ftp, it worked.
Anyone know the problem?
Hi Brian. MS don't think 3rd party SMB server is safe….so….It encrypt all password send to 3rd party SMB server(linux samba).
You can try to change the local policy to solve the problem:
Configure the "Microsoft network client: Send unencrypted password to third-party SMB server" option to be ENABLE
Configure "Network security: LAN Manager authentication level: Send LM & NTLMv2 session security if negotiated"
