    Samba Help

    I don't claim to be a samba expert. But, if I remember correctly the last time a buddy of mine was having problems with it he had to create a user on both machines with the same password and then everything worked fine.

    You may give it a spin and see what happens.

    Also make sure that the linux domain and windows workgroup are the same.

    When its ask for authentication, which username and password are you trying ? Is it the one which you configured on server or your local host username and password.

    Whenever you share something, to give access to your you need to create samba user.
    Code:
    /usr/bin/smbpasswd -a username password
    and check whichever folder you are sharing, user have read/write/execute permissions as per your need.

    Let us know if it works.
