What is running on the PC that can connect? -- XP Pro?

Can the XP Home box ping the Samba server?

Then there is the error msg.:

... You might not have permission to use this network resource. ...
doer the Win user for the laptop have both Unix & Samba accounts on the Samba server? Alternatively, would adding a "guest ok = yes" line in the [cp], or perhaps the [print$], section of the smb.conf fix this?

Beware, I am only a student of Samba . . .

Yes both PCs accessing the server are XP.
Yes, can ping the server.
Yes, synced user names with each other, Unix and Samba
Adding that line has no effect on the Samba share "data".

FYI: Windows XP Home Edition does not include the necessary security tools to login to a domain, whereas Windows XP Professional Edition does. It looks like your samba config is setup as just a workgroup stand-alone server, so that shouldn't be a factor. One way to test that is to run testparm. Pay attention to the line "Server role:".

You can also check /var/log/samba/log.smbd & log.nmbd for any errors or failures. What does /var/log/syslog have to say about samba, smbd or nmbd? At least, that's what everybody has been telling me to check for my Domain PDC.
