connecting to Samba with Windows XP
I wish to share /home/cheechi/folder to my network. i have configured Samba and SuSEFirewall as well as i can; i use a hardware firewall on my router (a little standalone one, you know the kind) so i have pretty much every service allowed for my SuSE box on the internal network - i like to play with stuff internally before i decide if it's ready for the web. Samba is an allowed service - double checked. windows XP has no firewall running, they're on the same router so there's nothing to come between them. when i try to map /folder as a network drive it looks like this
when i try to connect, an error comes up telling me that my password is incorrect. this is the same for the one user on the SuSE box as well as for root. i have a wireless router that is a client of the first, and an iBook that comes up with the same error. all computers are in WORKGROUP. are there any special rules i don't know about when mounting a smb drive? i can share windows folders to my linux box without a problem - the setup for seeing a network share works great in linux.
any help would be greatly appreciated, i hate having to VNC into my linux box to transfer stuff to and from it.
