Can't access samba from WinXP home


After reinstalling linux server (replaced Fedora c1 with c2) I can't access samba server from XP home. I used same smb.conf file as before and it works fine for another computer with Win98.
I keep getting request for guest password I can't get rid off.

My smb.conf:

[global]
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
dns proxy = no
printer = hp2100m
load printers = yes
guest account = benjamin
server string = serverbe
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
password server = None
workgroup = mshome
guest ok = yes
printcap name = /etc/printcap
security = SHARE
max log size = 50
hosts deny = ALL
hosts allow = 127.0.0.1 192.168.0.

[homes]
comment = Home Directories
browseable = no
writeable = yes

# Un-comment the following and create the netlogon directory for Domain Logons
; [netlogon]
; comment = Network Logon Service
; path = /home/netlogon
; guest ok = yes
; writable = no
; share modes = no


# Un-comment the following to provide a specific roving profile share
# the default is to use the user's home directory
;[Profiles]
; path = /home/profiles
; browseable = no
; guest ok = yes


# NOTE: If you have a BSD-style print system there is no need to
# specifically define each individual printer
[printers]
comment = All Printers
browseable = no
printable = yes
path = /var/spool/samba

[root]
comment = cel disk
valid users = benjamin
writeable = yes
create mode = 0765
path = /
allow hosts = 192.168.0.10 127.

[benjamin]
path = /home/benjamin
writeable = yes
guest ok = yes

[ps printer]
printer = HPps
comment = ps printer
browseable = no
printable = yes
path = /var/spool/samba

hi Provi, welcome to lq. try adding these options under global

netbios name = your netbios name
encrypt passwords = Yes

remember to restart smbd and nmbd after any changes.
good luck.

on mine, security = share (don't know if it's case sensitive, but most *nix stuff is), also, does user benjamin on your linux box require a password, if so, then you might want to set up a guest account, then passwd -f guest to allow it to not have a password, and map shares accordingly

It is working now, thanks.

This morning I got report from logwatch and here are some samba warnings:

WARNING: Kernel Errors Present
end_request: I/O error, dev hda, sector...: 4 Time(s)
smb_file_read: //pagefile.sys validation failed, error=4294967270...: 1 Time(s)
smb_lookup: find //pagefile.sys failed, error=-26...: 14 Time(s)
smb_proc_readdir_long: error=-13, breaking...: 6 Time(s)

Should I worry or is this normal?

my working theory is that if it does what you want it to do, then error messages are just there to let you know the program is working
