Windows7 PC read error when accessing SAMBA share through PDC

If your getting a connection reset by pair (full error text below) when trying to access your Linux SAMBA share running in SERVER mode (SHARE mode should not encounter this error) from your Windows7 PC with the SERVER authentication being handled by an external Primary Domain Controller (PDC) you will need to set the Local Security settings as follows to get things running correctly :-

  6. Send LM & NTLM responses
  8. Minimum session security for NTLM SSP
  9. Disable Require 128-bit encryption
