I have configured a simple share between two computer in the same lan, one using FC3 and the other being windows XP home. The thing is i can drop and copy files on the shared folder withing windows, from any machine, being linux or windows. But when trying to access the shared folder inside my linux box, i get a window that asks me to put a username and password. It says on the window title: 'connect to localhost.localdomain'. What the hell is going on here?
Here's the parts i modified from smb.conf: (some lines have a ; there, the manuals didn't say i should remove them)
workgroup = MYGROUP
; hosts allow = 192.168.1. 192.168.2. 127. 10.0.0.
;path = /home/punisher/Shared
;public = yes
;only guest = yes
Why is it so complicated to achieve something this simple?
