    Samba users via webmin

    Hey all, i have had a samba windows home network for ages now, the problem i have is that me and my brother share the same server, etc. But from windows "network" i gotta login with my account info everytime, i tryed setting up a user for him via the samba interface on webmin (which is ausom), but it dousnt seem to work, im a little confuzed since my user credentials work, (main system account) and i created him an system account, and it dousnt work.

    And hes does appear in the "Edit Samba users and passwords" :S

    I use a console prompt approach as I did not both to use webmin anymore.

    The CLI is all I need and I am able to get what I want done easily with it.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install openssl-server
    The you can use an SSL telnet tool of your choice.
