    Samba in DMZ


    we are having trouble connecting to a samba share in our dmz. it keeps telling us:

    \\www is not accessible. You might not have permission to user this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

    The network path was not found.


    here is the smb.conf file:

    [global]
    log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
    socket options = TCP_NODELAY
    obey pam restrictions = yes
    force directory mode = 776
    force group = nobody
    encrypt passwords = yes
    passdb backend = tdbsam
    dns proxy = no
    netbios name = www
    netbios aliases = www
    server string = %h (Samba, Ubuntu)
    invalid users = root
    remote announce = 10.17.129.0
    force create mode = 776
    workgroup = MONTROSECOUNTY
    os level = 20
    force user = nobody
    syslog = 0
    security = user
    preferred master = no
    panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d
    max log size = 1000
    ; wins support = now
    ; wins server = w.x.y.z
    ; name resolve order = lmhosts host wins bcast
    ; interfaces = 127.0.0.0/8 eth0
    ; bind interfaces only = true
    ; syslog = no

    [www]
    comment = Web Site Root
    writeable = yes
    user = ...
    path = /var/www
    write list = ...

    the [www] is the start of the config for the directory we're trying to share. the users that the ... represents are all the users in the group that own the directory.
