Can't run executable files from a samba share on Win98
Hey everyone, I'm new here and not terribly experienced with Linux, so thanks in advance for your help.
I've got a Fedora Core 2 server with several samba shares on my network that I use to store utilities and tools that's shared across several subnets. I've got the shares set to "share" securtity, and I have no trouble working with them from windows 2000 and XP clients. Whenever I browse from a windows 98 client, I can see everything fine (got past the passwords issue), but I can't launch any executable files. I tried downloading the files to the local machine, but it won't even allow me to copy. I get the error
"The specified resource or device is no longer available".
If I try to launch the file from the share, I get an invalid page fault, and the message
"this operation has been cancelled due to restrictions on your machine".
I've set the permissions wide open on both the shares and the files on my linux machine. I've set the network security options to "low" for the local intranet (on the win98 control panel). I should note that I have no problem running executables from other windows or netware shares, just from this particular samba share (I don't have another samba share to check against).
Does anyone have any ideas of things to check? I've gone through swat, the samba config file, the redhat samba config program; I can't find any option that seems to relate to this issue.
If you can help, you'll have my eternal gratitude. Thanks!
