SAMBA Server not accessible
Well, I tried piggy-backing on other threads, without success. So, I am starting my own thread. I have a RH9.0 server running SAMBA2.2.7a. I have a correct xinetd.conf. My smb.conf is correct as far as I can tell. I can see the server on XP and Win98 boxes, but I can't connect. I cannot connect through the XP Network Places wizard. (The server is found, but there are no shares.) The Win98 Network Neighborhood sees the server and knows it is a SAMBA server, but returns a 'Permissions' error. The user and password are correct for the SAMBA server.
There are also some odd behavior on the Linux side. I can connect with smbclient using the hostname of the server but not the netbios name of the SAMBA server. I can also connect to the XP and Win98 shares quite well. Also, when I run smbclient, the reports are different for the Linux and the Windows connections - in particular domain, workgroup and master browser.
I know that this SAMBA box was running at one time. I think some of the problems can be attributed to the 2.2.7a, which I believe was a security update some months ago. I have uninstalled/reinstalled without success. I have tried stripped down smb.conf with no results. I am to the point where I am thinking about moving to Fefora and hoping this will get sorted out. Can anyone give me some direction to go?
