Tiger assumes that your smb server accepts encrypted passwords. Older Unix/Linux servers running Samba (this is the case with dreambox) are configured to accept Plain Text passwords. Below is a fix to tell Tiger to send a plain text password for authentication. This assumes you have a working knowledge of the unix command line.


1. open a terminal session

2. cd /etc

3. sudo vi nsmb.conf (NOT the smb.conf file...this may ADD a new file...)

4. add these lines...




5. save file (wq)


BE AWARE that this now sends plain text and can be easily captured (via tcpdunp).
