    I am sorry for using this topic, but SAMBA is also my problem.

    I am running Samba on Fedora Core 3 as a File Share Server ( security = SHARE ). Windows XP sees Samba server, sees shares, can browse through and look.

    At the same time Samba sees my XP workstation, but when I click on the icon it waits for some time and comes back with error "Error displaynig folder. You might not have permission to read Windows Network".

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks.

    Please don't hijack threads.

    You must enable the guest account in WinXP for this to work. Go to Administrative Tools->Computer Management->Users and Groups (I think that's where it is...) and enable the guest account from there.

    sarumont,


    I am sorry, I did not think it is a hijack, every forum has own culture.


    Guest account did not work. I enabled it, left password empty. And Fedora still shows me "You do not have the permission nessesary to view the contents of Windows Network [computer name}"

    I am still lost.

    EDIT: I forgot to say that "smbmount" command does not work either every time returning ERROR 2215 ( NT_LOGON something ). I have tried all smbmount command forms, including credentials option.

    Just to add my piece of information. I have the same problem the only difference is when I had Core 1 and tried to access a Windows Server Share it prompted me for a Username and Password. Now when I installed Core 3 and try to access the share I receive the same error AlexPal. "Error displaying folder. You might not have permission to read Windows Network"

    The guest option does not work.

    TIA

    Joe,

    here is what has happened. I was about to send everything to hell but decided to try default samba configuration samba set to after installation... Full of sudden I got to Windows shared icons after clicking on computer icon on a Linux side. Bingo! I had few other problems but security = user helped a lot. To make Windows directories available you should set permissions to Properties->Security->Permissions to Everybody -> Full Control.

    I am not sure that this combination is the only one working. But I am too tired to experiment with this very simple feature.

    Alex.
