Unable to login to samba on Linux
I tried to search for a solution for this problem but couldnt.
So anyone out there plzzzz help
I am really desperate
I have samba configured on the linux box.
1.Steps that I followed to configure samba.
path = /<my path>
writeable = yes
guest ok = yes
2. I added a user in the smbpasswd file using the command
smbpasswd -a <any user that is going to logon from windows>
3. I kept the security level to user. I cannot make it share because I need to delete some files and share level doesnot allow me that
4. I login to the windows machine and in the run I type
When I try the fourth step on the windows box I get an authentication pop up
When I try to login with the user I specified in the smbpasswd file.It does not login and comes up with the username <computer name of windows >\<username>.
I even tried mapping the users but couldn't do it I still get the authentication pop up
note : I cannot change the mod to 777 for the folder.
Any suggestion please.
