File sharing using Samba
 
Please help. I'm trying to use Samba to share files between a Windows XP Home machine and a Linux machine (Fedora Core 2). Printing and Internet access work fine (the Windows machine is connected to the Internet and to the printer). But I can't get file sharing to work. When I go in Windows Explorer, it shows Mygroup, but when I click on it, the machine hangs up.

Here's my smb.comf:

[global]
workgroup = mygroup
server string = Samba Server
hosts allow = 192.168.0.1
printcap name = /etc/printcap
load printers = yes
cups options = raw
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 50
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
password server = None
guest ok = yes
dns proxy = yes
[homes]
comment = Home Directories
browseable = yes
writeable = yes
[printers]
comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/samba
browseable = no
printable = yes
[adam]
path = /home/adam
browseable = yes
writeable = yes
guest ok = yes

Thanks very much.

Is the windows box 192.168.0.1?

What's in /var/log/samba/%m.log? (%m is the connecting machine name)

Yes, the Windows box is 192.168.0.1.

I can't open the log files. When I double click, I get a message that it could not display; the attempt to log in failed. When I right click, the icon disappears.

Click? :p

Try a terminal and more /var/log/samba/machineName.log to see the whole file, or tail /var/log/samba/machineName.log to see the last 10 lines of it.
