Samba with WinXP and Suse 9.2
With all the traffic on this topic, seems like there should be a separate forum.
I have two WinXP PCs networked thru a router and cable modem. I added a box with SUSE 9.2. Everything works as far as connecting to the internet. The SUSE box can browse files on the two PCs.
After reading several posts on these forums, I have Samba Server installed and can now see three samba folders from my PCs:
"groups on Samba", "users on Samba", and "profiles on Samba."
When I click on any of these I get a "Connecting to Linux" dialog box for User Name and Password.
What I have not been able to figure out is how to set up the proper accounts on the WinXP PCs and on the SUSE box. I guess I'm too new to linux but am trying to learn as I go. Someone mentioned the book "SUSE Bible" or something like that.
My goal like many of the new posts here is to set the SUSE box as a file and printer server for my PCs.
Any detailed help for completing my setup would be very appreciated ans sorry if this answer has already been posted here but I have been searching like mad on these forums for detailed help on setting up the prpoer user accounts. Please don't assume I know anything yet about SUSE or any other distr. Thanks in advance.
Also, my two printers on the SUSE box are found by the WinXP PCs but are tagged as "Access denied - unable to connect"
