I've found that if I add a simple password with more than 5 characters in it and I can't authenticate to the netware server via cifs. if the password is shorter than 5 characters it works fine, what am I doing wrong or is this a limitation to the novell cifs protocol?

the servers are netware 6.5 sp8 edir 8.8.5 and the client is a windows xp/windows 2000
