This works fine for me. You might simply be missing a line in your config

In your smb.conf:
I'll give that a shot and see how it goes. On a home network
with wpa encryption, and a firewall that drops just about everything,
except out going, and receiving of data from a connection that was
established from behind the router, am I pretty safe to not worry about
password encryption? I do trust everyone currently on the network. Or is
it still a good idea. I'll enable it for another level of security, but
just wondering how necessary this is for a small home network?
The "encrypt passwords" option specifies whether or not Samba expects
plain-text or encrypted passwords to be transmitted from the client, and
it also affects how those passwords are stored in the smbpasswd file.
As I understand it, encrypted passwords are required in order for Samba
to work correctly with modern version of Windows (2000 and newer). This
option should be enabled unless you have some specific reason to disable it.
