Samba - wont accept pass from XP machine


I have samba set up and running on my Suse 7.3 machine. On my XP Home machine I can see it, but when I click on it it prompts for username and password. I entered the smb username/pass and I get login failures. I have encryption on and I'm a WORKGROUP. Any ideas what is wrong? Both smbd and nmbd are running.

You used smbpasswd to create password/username?
Please post smb.conf

BYA, I have the opposite problem, my doesn't ask for password and I cann't see it in network places.

By the way nuzzy you can use SWAT which much easier to configure.

Sounds like my setup. I have samba running and I can see it from my XP box, but it won't prompt for a username/password (it wants me to see my administrator )

Try this from the XP box in the command prompt:

net use * \\nuzzy\site /user:nuzzy\george

You'll get prompted for george's SAMBA (not necessarily the same as UNIX) password. Enter it and tell us what happens!
