I was absolutely amazed by the great hacks described on the wiki! Everything works really well on my My Book (blue rings). After setting up Optware I started using Samba from its repository and implemented all settings I also use on my Debian system. No pain, it all worked immediately!
Sadly however, sometimes Windows XP clients seem to 'forget' their login credentials of the mapped network drives during the day, causing much distress at my office! Using Windows GUI nor command line tool net use (with or without persistent) makes Windows behave correctly. All clients need to reconnect to their network drives to regain access to the Samba shares. But in time the connection fails again…
Do you have any suggestions that may help me?
Thank you in advance!
