    This is what i have on the smb.conf file. At this point, the initial window asking username and password is no longer showing up, but now i get a message saying that i have probably no permission to access that share. Anyway, here's the smb.conf file:

    workgroup = MYGROUP
    security = share

    [SHARED]
    path = /home/punisher/Shared
    browseable = yes
    public = yes

    Isn't this a simple config so i can get access to it. And btw, i already performed the chmod 755 command to the directory, to no avail. WHAT'S GOING ON HERE? HOW CAN I MESS UP ON SOMETHING SO SIMPLE? Help please.

    I just tried to set it up using security = user. Guess what? Didn't work. Here's what i did:

    1. smb.conf file
    [global]
    workgroup = MYGROUP
    server string = laptop server

    hosts allow = 10.0.0.0/255.255.255.0
    security = user

    [shared]
    path = /home/punisher/Shared
    public = yes
    create mode = 0766
    browseable = yes

    2. adduser username
    smbpasswd -a username (typed in the password)
    service smb restart

    3. Went to the windows box and double clicked the share
    typed in the username and password

    4. Same error: no permission

    ?????????????????????????????????????????????????? ????

    The other machine has windows xp home, is that the problem? (i know it's a silly question but i had to ask, i am running out of manuals and ideas).

    have you done chmod 755 /home/punisher or chmod 755 /home/punisher/shared ?
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

    Thumbs down Samba does not work

    I performed 'chmod 755 /home/punisher/Shared', but that changes nothing.

    I now have a completely different smb.conf file that i will post here as soon as i get home from work. In fact, here at work, the rest of the people use windows, perhaps i can try here when i get done. Jejejejejeje.

    Thanks for the help, i'll be posting here again pretty soon.
