I don't think it says so anywhere but my experience indicates that
Sophos autoupdate only works on XP (and presumably 2k) if encrypted
passwords work. Since I assume you're using Samba on the Sun, are you
accepting encrypted passwords? Although having just read your message
again, since it's been working for ages, I guess you are...!
