Samba: the account is not authorized to log in

Dear All,

I cannot connect from a Windows2000 virtual machine (VMware Server) to
a samba directory, as I get (in Windows2000) the following message:

"The account is not authorized to log in from this station". The
output of 'testparm' is below.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,


# testparm
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
Processing section "[interdir]"
Loaded services file OK.

        workgroup = MYGROUP
        server string = Samba Server
        encrypt passwords = No
        username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
        log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
        max log size = 50
        load printers = No
        dns proxy = No
        cups options = raw

        path = /home/psmith/interdir
