Question Unable to copy or create files on samba


I have an OS X box that has 4 drives shared out via samba. I have a Gentoo / XP box that can see the files under Linux but can not copy or create files across this network. The XP Pro box can do all the above however.

I'm browsing these files via KDE. What am I missing?

This sounds strange, it's ususally the other way around. If XP can read and right to the shares then it sounds like samba is setup properly and is working as it should.

It sounds like it maybe on the Gentoo side of it. Is there a firewall running on Gentoo, I don't use Gentoo but had a similar problem with SuSE when I was using it, the firewall didn't allow for samba ports It would allow me to see the shares but not allowing read/write access.

If the firewall is running, shut it down and see if that fixes it, if it does you need to add the samba ports to you firewall to allow access to the samba.
