Do you want to use samba as a Primary Domain Controller or just for basic file sharing?

You need to change:
encrypt passwords = No
encrypt passwords = Yes
Many thanks for the reply I will change the passwords I wud like it to be a domain Cont. although I hoped just to get it working I am now after a long struggle at the stage of being able to see windows from linux but not the other way around I have tried changing the password patch in the windows registry but no good
I cannot browse to the linux computer which is the Samba server. Thanks again
You need to add a samba user.

smbpasswd -a username

Then enter in your password (the user you add under smbpasswd needs to already be a user on your linux system).

Retart samba, and then try to browser.

Also, please verify that WORKGROUP is your workgroup name.
