i have netgear router and two computers connected on it.When im trying to see C folder of my dad computer using samba i have to enter his username and password.He has fat32 partition and no password so i enter his username only.I hit ok and after few seconds i get the same window again(enter username and password).Im realy new on samba so help would be appreciated.
what is windows version of the computer with C folder? if windows 98, should have no problem, just read/read write permission password
if it's win XP, by default administrator is not allowed to login, with blank password, from remote computer
what about if i would create accoun which would not be administrator?
you have to mount a remote directory with smbfs... IE:
mount -t smbfs -o username=adminaccount //dadcomp/c$
then will ask you for a password.. if none i would assume just press enter.. never done it without a password tho. if you want this to happen automatically you have to add an /etc/fstab entry.
