Problem connecting SAMBA to Windows 2003 Server


** never mind. I found an alternative solution. Just type smb://serverIP in my Konqueror and everything works fine with my Windows 2003 server. All my share folders show up and I can copy them. Hope this helps others
**

I am using smb4k (SAMBA graphical utility), and I am having problems connecting to my Windows 2003 share folders. I can connect no problem to my Windows XP computers.

When I try to connect to the Windows 2003 share folders, I get this error:
cli_negprot: SMB signing is mandatory and we have disabled it. 20456: protocol negotiation failure. SMB connection failed.

I know it's possible to share with Windows 2003 because it works flawlessly with my Ubuntu LIVE CD. I'm using Mandriva 2005LE.

Any ideas?

if you want to mount a share to a directory:

smbmount //serverip/sharename /to/a/directory/somewhere

Thanks for the tip, fotoguy! I suspect that it's my graphical client, smb4k, that is not working well with SAMBA. Samba on its own seems to work nicely from the command prompt.

Glad you like the tip, happy to help out. I personally don't like all the fancy GUI stuff these days and prefer to do things the simple way like edit the smb.conf by hand, make all your directories by command line. Seems to save you a lot of headaches rather than trying to use third party applications.

hi All,
I did my best following the instructions from all possible resources....to ended up with this SMB signing thing thing, when tryin to mount a win2K3 share
as Advised, I went & changed the local security policy..
updated the pgo.....then re-tried to mount the share, but still get the same prblm....

Please Dear Linux, Samba Guru, novice, or NewBie..
can any one show the straight path to a lost soul in the Samba World

Hi,

I also had the same problem mounting a Win 2003 share on a Gentoo box running SAMBA 3.0.14a. I have figured out the problem and fixed it in my case, hopefully it can work for others.

I used:

mount -t cifs -o username=test,password=password //192.168.1.10/Share /files/share

The above worked, but when cifs is replaced with smbfs, i get the aformentioned error message in the first post.
