Hi All,

I have changed this thread as my problem has changed.

Basically I have installed samba and set up as far as i can tell as per the requirements using SWAT.

I have set a new user to match my windows username and have tried to access the share from a winXP PC.

It pops up a box and the username is fixed at '\guest'

So how can change this behaviour? the IP address is the IP of the samba server.

config as follows:

# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from (
# Date: 2007/01/23 16:51:16
