Hi airween,

What is the server that you're connecting against?

The presence of ANSI and Unicode password fields at /all/ in your packet
trace suggests that the server is using plaintext password
authentication.  This is disabled by default in 8.04 for security
reasons; to enable it, you would set 'client plaintext auth = yes' in
the [global] section of /etc/samba/smb.conf.  However, if this is the
cause of the failure then there should also be an error message saying:

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

which you don't have here; so maybe getting information about your
server would help diagnose this further.

"smbclient -L" gives NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE
