Hi all, having a problem connecting to samba. Connections work if I run:

smbclient //myserver/myshare -U username

This works both locally and from within the subnet the client is on.
However, when I try to run any kind of Windows client to connect (e.g.
Norton Ghost), I get an invalid password. I know the password is

I've checked /var/log/samba and both log files in the directory are blank.

This is a new installation on Ubuntu Server 9.10.
