    Samba Server is a pain in my _ _ _!

    I have been trying to get Samba Server to run properly for the past 6 months on and off. I currently running Mandrak 10.1. I can see and access my window shares from linux. I can only see my Linux box through Windows. If I try to open it up I am met with a message saying something like \\Localhost is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network reaousrce....Blah Blah Blah.... From my other Linux box I can see and access my Linux shares, but only when I force SMB4lK browser to prompt for and authentication, and then type in the authentication of user in which file is located. I am guessing I have to edit something with Users and permissions? I cant seem to find the SWAT on Mandrake, it doesn't seem to be in the same place as it was on Fedora. Can some one please help me !!!

    Some Info:

    2 Linux Boxes

    Multiple Windows Machines

    Usernames on Linux and Windows are all the same ( ccerinojr) and so are the passwords.

    well, the windows error is a matter of windows becoming confused:
    it's trying to access your linbox with the name of "localhost" which isn't a valid name, simply cos that loops back (the winbox is trying to access itself)

    Put \\ip_of_Linux_machine in your windex browser and it should work.
