Please post your /etc/samba/smb.conf (without the comment lines for space reasons).

Do you get the same message when the firewall (iptables) is turned off?

You are blocking the local loopback (127.0.0.1). Your system talks to itself through 127.0.0.1. Try changing “host allow” to:

[global]
host allow = 192.168.1. 127.

Notice that I dropped the “1" from 192.168.1.1 Otherwise, only one system (the router?) could talk to you.

Even better, delete the “host allow” line for now and retest. Be sure to restart smb after you make these changes.

“Host allow” restricts access and must include the local loopback.

I really should also ask, is your subnet really “192.168.1.” ?

Also, it wouldn’t hurt to add:
[global]
netbios name = WhateverItIs


PEACEDOG recently made a good suggestion about trying a simple smb.conf when having problems.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=172418

His suggestion was:

smb.conf:

[global]
workgroup = yourworkgroup
netbios name = yournetbiosname
security = SHARE

[share]
path = /tmp
public = yes

Once, you get samba to work with this simple smb.conf, then you can start spicing smb.conf up with other definitions. Again, don't forget to restart smb after you change smb.conf.

The netbios name is just the name that represents your linux box in smb: and windows. Just make something up. A truly conforming netbios name can be almost anything, as long as it is fairly short and only contains letters, numbers and a few other things like “-“ and “_”, but no spaces. I can’t remember the whole list of restrictions, but if a character is something that you couldn’t include in a windows folder or file name, it probably can’t be in the netbios name, either.

If you were asking how to verify your subnet, open a terminal (i.e., command line) and type ifconfig. Your IP address should be on the second line of the adapter info. You need to be logged in as root or “su” (i.e., super user) within terminal to use ifconfig.

Have a nice weekend. I am gone!
