Error authenticating Tiger clients against SMB server

After upgrading a PowerMac from Mac OS X Jaguar to Mac OS X Tiger, this client couldn't access a remote folder hosted on a Sun server running Samba services.

I did not have access at the Sun server so I needed a solution for the client and fortunately I found it browsing the web.

The problem is that the Sun server expected the password from the client in clear text.

The following is a link to Apple knowledge base about this issue.
