Windows cannot access Linux pc
I use redhat linux 8 and set it up as a samba server for win98 to access.
When the samba server is setup,the win98 pc can see the linux computer (the linux computer's name is Manutd) in network neighbourhood. But when i clicked on the icon, a message box appeared. Its contents are: Enter network password
I typed different passwords ( win98 password,linux root password,linux user password) but to no avail. Hence, i rightclicked on the linux computer icon and the message 'The server \\Manutd does not accept remote requests' appeared.
Then I rightclicked on the linux computer icon and clicked properties. I clicked on the Netwatcher button in the properties window and the message ' The computer \\MANUTD is configured for userlevel security and cannot be administered from this share level computer.' appeared.
The changes I made to smb.conf in the linux pc is as follows:
Under the [global] section:
workgroup = ONG ( My windows network workgroup is ONG)
hosts allow = 192.168.1.2 (The ip add of the win98 pc)
guest account= pcguest
May I know what password to type? (I didn't set any passwords when setting up samba) or even better, is there a way to get rid of the network password dialog box? (should I comment out the security=user line?)
Please reply quickly if you can.....thanks!!
