I've been trying to connect to our NW6.5Sp8 servers via CIFS without any success. We do have an old NW6Sp5 server which accepts connections, but that is on a seperate, legacy tree. I've been assured by our network guy's that this is not a firewall issue. They have traced the packets to the server sub-net, but confirm that there is no reply.
I've set the NTLM on the pc. I've got a user who has a simple password. I've filled the cifsctxs.cfg and ctxs.cfg with the relevant context details.
I've tried using a simple 'Net Use' command (which some off site users use to connect to this legacy server), but all I get is an error message which states "System Error 1326 has occurred. Login Failure: Unknown or bad password". The user that I use is one of my standard test users who can log in to the server normally without any problems.

On advice from a different Novell Forum I've completed a test (LDAP traces) iaw TID 700106, the results are copied in below (I've changed the server details to <server.details> in the text):
