So OS 10.5 found my file server. It is listed in Finder under Shared. However when I try to connect to it with Samba username and password, it tells me "Sorry, you entered an invalid username and password."

I can connect fine from my Windows box. Any suggestions? I believe my smb.conf file is set for encrypted passwords.

You may need to enter either the domain or server name before the username to correctly find it.

If its a Windows 2003 server, you may need to turn off SMB signing to allow non-Windows machines to access shares. See Local Policy console.

Actually, it turns out I was using the wrong password. Whoops! So I think it is working now.
