    strange prob connecting XP to smb share - "net use" works "Windows Explorer" doesn't

    I am a newbie at Linux, but I have some how managed to setup a samba domain member server.
    The server will be used as a fax server.
    Installed hylafax and smbfax and everything is working well.
    Connected to the domain no problem using security=ads.
    Kinit, wbinfo -u, getent all work no problem.
    However, there is one strange problem when attempting to connect from an XP box. First I must connect using:
    "net use * \\SMBServer\Share /USER:domain\user"
    only THEN can I access the share through Windows Explorer????????
    Has anyone ever come across this problem?

    Thanks for any help!
