    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.

    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
