Samba authentication failures trying to access my Windows PC from openSUSE 11.3
 
So far I've been able to get Samba to connect to the my WORKGROUP and I

can see my Vista PC as well as my 3 hdd's but when I try and open the

folder, any folder, C$; D$; or E$ I'm confronted with a user name and

password prompt. No user name or password combination that's associated

with either machine, openSUSE or Vista will grant me access. Why am I

seeing this prompt and what I would really like to know is can it be

disabled all together? Otherwise, what user name and password does Suse

want? Do I need to tell Suse in a terminal a user name and password?

Thanks,
Adam

Have you set the Samba users with smbpasswd? You need to create samba users and corresponding passwords.

I did and I still wasn't able to access the hard drives.

What about the explicitly shared folders? Can you browse them? Do you have samba client installed?
