Storing passwords for SMB shares
Authored by: religon on Feb 19, '03 06:43:42PM

Does this work outside an Active Directory? Must the file server also be
the PDC? Must the file server be in the same domain that the user
authenticates to?

I have tried this where my file server resides in one domain and I
authenticate users with another domain using an NT 4 PDC. I assume
domain 1 (MOZART) and domain 2 (OAK) have a trust relationship.

My file looks like this...

[NT032:IMAUSER:SHARE_DIR]
addr=192.168.0.19
password=mypass
workgroup=OAK

NT032 is in the MOZART domain.
IMAUSER authenticates with the OAK domain.

I have been using BBEdit Lite to modify the hidden dot-file. I have been
saving it as UNIX line breaks.

Frustrating.

Any insight would be appreciated.
