Samba has confused me beyond all reason at this point someone please help. I have a desktop that has Mandriva on it and a laptop with xp professional. I set up the samba server and can connect to it on my laptop, however I can not access any of the folders. I went into the smb.conf file and enabled the tmp file
comment = Temporary file space
path = /tmp
read only = no
public = yes
that works perfectly fine and I can access it on the laptop. When I try and use a similar logic to share any folder that is on my desktop or anywhere else it will not work. Someone please help.
