From Gutsy Gibbon to Hardy Heron - a samba story

Upgrading from Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon to Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron, you may witness problems in connecting to network shares. The following error my occur:

Server requested plaintext password but 'client use plaintext auth' is disabled

The solution is to set your samba client to accept plaintext authentication. Therefore, insert the following two lines in smb.conf file:

client plaintext auth = yes
client lanman auth = yes

and restart samba.
