Samba without insecurity?
Authored by: extra88 on Mar 08, '05 01:55:13PM

Samba in OS X 10.3 is currently version 3.0.5 which should be new enough to support all these features. However in my opinion most people can be satisfied with NTLMv2 only and don't need to figure out SMB signing (which this tip is about). I don't think Win98 or NT support SMB signing so OS X clients are not alone. My guess is use of Kerberos requires somehow joining Mac clients to the AD domain.

FYI, OS X 10.2 has Samba 2.2.3a (plus patches). I'm not certain but I think it only supports NTLM, not NTLMv2. As time goes by, it's a lot less likely that Apple will issue an update for OS X 10.2 that would break a self-installed upgrade to Samba but it's still a risk.
