I've installed Samba on FC5 and configured it using Swat.
I can browse the network from my XP machine to the Samba server, and when I get there, I can see my home directory. However, when I try to enter it, I'm being asked for a username/password which isn't being accepted. No errors are being written to the samba log files when this happens.
What I've done:
cat /etc/passwd | mksmbpasswd.sh > /etc/samba/smbpasswd
And here is my smb.conf:
server string = Samba Server
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 50
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
dns proxy = No
ldap ssl = no
comment = Home Directories
valid users = users
read only = No
browseable = No
My smbpasswd and Unix passwd are the same. I've read help files, searched high and low but do not know what is wrong. Can anyone help please?
