im having troubles with samba accessing a windows xp professional machine from a gentoo (newest build) machine. here's what i get if I try smbclient or mount -t smbfs:
Anonymous login successful
Domain=[WORKGROUP] OS=[Windows 5.1] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]
tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED
EVEN THOUGH i made SURE that anonymous login was possible on the shared directory's properties menu under 'sharing'.
another problem I have noticed is that RPC (remote procedure protocol) doesn't seem to work at all on my windows machine. My copy of windows is illegal
so I might have thought that was a contributor aswell.
so far i've tried using smbclient and mount. same error on both. I can access the share on my windows machine locally using start>run "\\*computer*\*share*"
I think that's it. if any of you know what I could be doing wrong here or why the heck RPC doesn't work then by all means reply.
thanks in advance.
