    Hi,

    OSX 10.6.1 does not solve the smb problem.

    Enabling cleartext password in cocktail sle edition does not solve the problem,

    kind regards,

    Toni

    I have same problem but it is even weirder...
    I started having issues with smb with 10.5.8 but usually after a reboot everything was back to normal...
    After upgrade to 10.6 every was also fine and then i started having issues accessing my smb shares on a XP machine. VNc to it or ping works fine...
    First time it happened I rebooted like I did on 10.5.8 and it worked again ...
    but now ...nothing does it ... I even recreated the smb share to same result...
    firewall is turned off... awaiting (eagerly) for a fix ...

    Hello,

    In the Terminal.app application (you can find it with spotlight or go in Applications->Utilities) just execute the command:
    ps -A | grep NetAuth

    which will show a line like:
    2028 ?? 0:11.22 /System/Library/CoreServices/NetAuthAgent.app/Contents/MacOS/NetAuthAgent

    Then you have to kill the process by executing the command:
    kill -9 2028

    where 2028 is the running process showed with the first command. This value will probably not be the same for you

    Am I clear enough?

    Best,

    That was clear, thank you. I've tried this but it doesn't seem to make a difference.

    Maybe killal -9 NetAuth is what is suited best for what you want.

    But again: It did -not- work for me. It just kills the login window.

    I just checked the new Snow leopard edition of cocktail.

    There under filesharing there is an entry which says: Allow sending password in clear text.
    Maybe this is useful. I will try tomorrow,

    kind regards,

    Toni


    Tried your "killall", too, with the same result. I'm very interested in what you find regarding the clear text password info.

    I'm upgrading to 10.6.1 right now, and i'll update if it made a difference for me (i'm not optimistic).

    Oh. Shoot. Sorry about my delayed response above.

    Hi everybody,

    I've also installed SnowLeopard 10.6.1 and also do have problems connection to a Samba-Server (based on Debian Lenny) since the Upgrade to SnowLeopard ("Wrong Password or Username").

    The following is a temporary fix and worked for me:
    Setting (temporary) a numeric SMB-Password for the relevant Account on the Samba Server.

    @Apple:
    This is an issue that you *really need to fix asap*

    Thank you,

    I can confirm on my two Dlink DNS-323s that changing the password to numbers works.

    I had the same problems logging into a Windows SMB share.

    Ommitting a @ - character in my login solved my issues.

    To me, this seems to be a bug with the handling of non-standard characters in logins and passwords.

    Cheers!

    Specifying the port number at the end of the share fixed it for me too.

    While smb://computername in the field didn't work, smb://computername:139 worked just fine. I just changed a couple of my favorites I had set and I'm back in business.

    Tried port 139 with no success. Is there another port to try?

    killing the NetAuth process and relaunching finder worked for me. YMMV. Very irritating bug - I use smb to work on a remote machine at work. No question of modifying the server end just to work round an Apple bug.

    I had all the same invalid username and password problems from my Macbook Pro trying to log into my home Vista (ugh!) network via a Linksys WRT600N router. My problem was not having a password set on my Vista machine. Never had a need for one til now. Soooo, now I can log in, mount my shared files but cannot use my shared Canon printer set up on the Vista machine. It goes into a spooling status on the Windows side and no further. I suspect it's SL driver problem, not a Windows problem as all permissions are correct. I've spent a week trying everything to no avail. Dumb answers from Canon tech support too.

    Also for me. Thanks! Additionally i had to remove the corresponding entries in keychain.
    I tried to access my samba share on a debian box.

    All numeric password also worked for me when connecting to a samba share on centos from 10.6.1

    CentOS release 5.3 (Final)
    samba-3.0.33-3.7.el5_3.1

    netatalk actually still works fine

    Just wanted to say that i actually did not have any problem in 10.5.8 , neither did i have this on 10.6 (SL) but once i updated to 10.6.1 i suddently could no longer connect to my shared directory on my win7 with
    smb://192.168.2.7/downloads

    Also my Nas was unreachable. I had not changed anything so i'm pretty sure it had something to do with the update. I tested to remove the login from keychain and restarted and when i tested my shared folder it asked for login/passwork and voula i was once again connected

    I hope this continues to work now. Also i hope it can help you guys. I know how frustrating this can be. Apple should fix this ASAP.
