    Exclamation Samba


    Hey,
    I set up a SAMBA server on my linux machine so i could access all my files on my windows XP machine. I setup samaba all up then goto Workgroups on windows XP then to my workgroup and then to my linux machine a password dialog appears and i enter the SAMBA user i created then i can see a list of accessible folders / shares and printers. I then click on a share folder and a second password dialog come up though this time when i attempt to login it appears not to let me the password dialog just reappears. How can i access my linux shares on my windows machine?

    Any help would be really apreciated,
    Thanks,
    Alex

    By the way i am using OpenSUSE 10.2 and Windows XP Media Center

    Samba File server

    Hi,
    some time ago I had the same problem. I solved it by building up the smb.conf file step-by-step. You need to have the same user accounts on both computers. You can see what I ended up with. I did not consider any sercurity, since these computers are in my house, and I'm the only user.

    [global]
    workgroup = JCI
    security = user
    encrypt passwords = Yes
    hosts deny = All
    hosts allow = 10.0.0.
    os level = 65
    preferred master = Yes
    domain master = Yes
    local master = Yes

    [home]
    comment = User Dirs
    path = /home/%U
    read only = No
    printable = No

    [web]
    comment = Apache 2 folder
    path = /var/www
    read only = Yes
    write list = jens

    [scripts]
    comment = CGI-Bin folder
    path = /usr/lib/cgi-bin
    read only = Yes
    write list = jens


    This file works fine for me.

    Just remembered....

    You need to synchronize the smbpasswd-file with the passwd-file.
