Samba / XP login failures while tring to access shared files (works with win2k)
I got samba running on a redhat box that is also my dhcp server,firewall, NAT, etc... anyway.. On my win2k box I can login to my samba system and access the shared files, however when I try to use my xp box I get this error:
Standard you dont have permissions error plus this:
You were not connected becuase a duplicate name exists on the network. Go to System in Control Panel to change your computer name and then try again.
Now thinking that XP was right I did what it said. (waste of time) I changed the name to something that would never be on my network nor that I have in any configuration file on any of my systems... same error.
Im not to good when it comes to dealing with xp, I wouldnt use it only the software I use to program a fpga board is only available for xp (school related)
Does anyone have any ideas?
