OK, this one has me stumped. 

I'm running SAMBA on a Linux file server (Ubuntu 10.10).  I also have several other Windows machines and Android tablets.
From my WDTV Live, I can access shares on all my Windows machines, but I keep getting an error message (Invalid username or password. Please try again.) when I try to connect to the Linux server.

My first thought was that it had to be a password problem.  (Oh, how I wish it had been that simple.)  I verified the credentials I was using by connecting to the server from another machine.  It worked, so I tried again from the WDTV--it didn't.  So I tried again, from each computer and tablet on my network.  All of them worked on the first try, except the WDTV, which didn't work at all--using *the same* credentials each time.

Anybody have any ideas?
