iam facing problem while configuring samba for our network .Here's the complete scenario.
The network consists of more than 200 terminals . now i tried to configure samba server on my linux box version 7.3 . i have tried using swat webmin and the basic smb.conf file. Now when the basic configuration is done i can only see linux share on a single machine eeven when i have not given anything in host.allow field.Second when i try ti access that linux share it asks me for user name and password even when i have given share level security. then it does'nt authenticate any of the users that i have created for samba.
Plz help me
Check out my samba howto and see if that can help you...on my site under howtos..
Are the following options set in the global section of your smb.conf file
workgroup = WORKGROUP
encrypt passwords = Yes
