Default Help with Samba and Windows 7

I have Fedora 12 installed with Samba 3.4.2 as a VMware client on a Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit operating system. Both SElinux and the firewall are disabled. On an XP client I can view the SAMBA shares no problem.

However on the Windows 7 64bit box I can see the machine "fedora12" but cannot progress past the request for username/password. Based on other searches I have updated the "Local Security Policies"
Network security: LAN Manager authentication level
Send LM & NTLM responses

Minimum session security for NTLM SSP
Disable Require 128-bit encryption
but nothing changes.

Does anyone have any suggestions on wha else I might try to get this working.

Thanks in advance.



HTML Code:
#======================= Global Settings =====================================

	log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
	netbios name = fedora12

Thumbs up Solved !

I have just overcome my issue but would still be keen to hear from anyone who has a better suggestion or advice.

1) Created a local user account for the Windows-7 machine, using the machine name
2) Create a local user account for the Windows-7 user account.
3) Sync the local accounts with Samba
4) Restart Samba
