Does winbindd work with your AD? use wbinfo to check.

I am not using a domain, domain controller, or active directory that I am
aware of.  I didn't see an obvious "is it working or not" option for wbinfo.

winbind -i steve says there is no user steve, but steve is correctly in my
smbpasswd file, and I can see samba shares from localhost an my xp system as

yes.  I notice my hostname resolves to the outside end of the firewall, not
the local ip - could this be causing issues in the certificate files?
