    Smile SAMBA Setup


    Problems! I attempted to setup SAMBA in FC4 and I can't access the "server" through my windows computers. I have looks up and down google and read 10,000 tutorials. All are a no go! Thanks again!

    What error/s does it give. Also, have you looked at this tutorial?

    Can you post your smb.conf? The problem is probably caused by a minor configuration issue...

    3 Rules:
    1) "It doesn't work..." is simply not useful information.
    2) Don't cross post!
    3) If you are asking for help, start by telling us your distro/os and version.

    naga123, check out the link I posted before.

    Also can you ping from both PC's successfully? And have you added a samba user on the server?
