Has anyone on this list had trouble getting dial-in domain authentication
using samba as a PDC?
The problem I have is this -
Upgraded to FreeBSD 4.7-release (clean re-install)
installed Samba 2.2.6.p2_1 configured to run as a PDC on the dial-in server
Using PPP in userland as normal for dial-in access
locally networked Win boxes including XP authenticate with samba as
expected and work ok
my dial-in connection does ppp authentication ok and ping, telnet etc works
ok (win98/me laptops)
any attempt to do a "domain" login to the samba PDC from the dial-in
connection fails - reports unable to locate domain server.
Samba's logs show no knowledge of the dial-in computer's attempts at
authorizing onto the domain
It seems that samba is ignoring requests from the dial-in link or is just
not getting them.
Ifconfig shows the Tun device being up, pointtopoint and multicast (but not
Broadcast???, but then it is a point to point link!) with the correct ip
Any thoughts, advice as to where the problem may be would be appreciated.
I have looked in the searchable samba archives but to no avail......
