Description Thomas M Steenholdt 2003-04-08 11:24:36 UTC
Description of problem:

When connecting to a samba server from nautilus using the uri smb://server/share
an auth window pops up, asking for credentials.

This authentication window has a warning message that says "Your password will
be transmitted unencrypted" however this can't be the case as the connection
succeeds and that would not have happened with clear-text password.
Also, having skimmed the code, the cli_session_setup() function that appears to
be handling the setup of this deviceless connection has a password field as well
as an NTpassword fiels, which suggests to me that one is used for clear-text and
one for encrypted passwords. 
I'm not a samba developer and i only skimmed the code as i got worried because
of the dialog...

So tell me, isn't the password actually encrypted during this or what?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. enter smb://server_name/share_name and hit enter in nautilus
2. watch the screen carefully :)

Actual results:
displays an auth dialog with a warning on it

Expected results:
displays an auth dialog without a warning on it

The message is completely unrelated to what is going on in reality.
