Can't connect to Samba server from MS Windows
My Linux computer (hostname "apst") is in the same workgroup
as my Microsoft PC running Windows 2003.
On my Linux host, I have the following section in the smb.conf file:
path = /home/public
public = yes
only guest = yes
writable = yes
printable = no
When I typed the command
the following message was displayed:
added interface ip=192.168.1.8 bcast=192.168.1.15 nmask=255.255.255.240
I typed in the password for the owner of directory /home/public.
The following text was displayed:
Domain=[WORKGROUP] Os=[Unix] Server=[Samba 2.2.7a]
This shows that I can connect to a file service.
I then go to the DOS command screen on my Microsoft PC and
typed the following command to map network drive g:
net use g: \\apst\public
The following error message was displayed:
System error 53 has occurred
The network path was not found
I then tried the following:
From the Microsoft PC
My Network Places --> Computers Near Me
I can see "apst" under the "Name" column with
comment "Samba server"
But when I clicked on entry "apst", the following error message
"Network path \\apst is not accessible"
Do you know what could be causing this problem?
