When accessing a server running Samba, Mac OS X opens a login window prompting for a username and password. With the correct username and password, I'm able to login and read/write to shares.
Using Windows XP, a similar login window opens, but the username and password appear to fail. After entering both, I click the OK button, the window flashes and reappears. When it reappears the username field now contains, theSambaMachineName\username and the password field is blank.
I'm guessing this is a common problem with Windows XP accessing Samba shares, but searching for general windows to samba problems hasn't been helpful. Anyone know the cause to the problem?
