ive been breaking my head over this since the past week, i have a network of 6 pcs at home and im trying to set up a file server in fedora 3. now the problem is i can see the server on all the pcs. but the linux box isnt acccepting the password, my samba conf file is....
# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name
workgroup = WORKGROUP
# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
server string = Samba Server
obey pam restrictions = no
# This option is important for security. It allows you to restrict
# connections to machines which are on your local network. The
# following example restricts access to two C class networks and
# the "loopback" interface. For more examples of the syntax see
# the smb.conf man page
hosts allow = 192.168.0. 192.168.0. 127.
# This option tells cups that the data has already been rasterized
cups options = raw
# Uncomment this if you want a guest account, you must add this to /etc/passwd
# otherwise the user "nobody" is used
guest account = pcguest
# Put a capping on the size of the log files (in Kb).
max log size = 50
now the thing is....doing the smbclient -L server doesnt let me log in at all..... using the password for root or for the samba users that i have defined using the.....in the windows boxes....ive used only one password for all users that i have created yet i cant log in.....any help please? thanks for ur time
this is my smbusers file
root = administrator admin
nobody = guest pcguest smbguest
nik = nik
n1k = n1k
