SMB Share Issues


I'm running an updated Trustix 3.0 server. I've got samba configured and running. I can view and write to my samba share via my XP machine, however the other Linux machines inside my LAN can't see the share for some reason.

I can see the Trustix machine itself from the other Linux machines, I simply can't see the share. Thinking it may be a firewall issue, I disabled the firewalls on the browsing machines to no avail.

Here's a portion of my smb.conf file:

[homes]
comment = Soulful93's Share
browseable = no
writable = yes
writable = yes
create mode = 0600
directory mode = 0700
valid users = soulful93

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

comment = Home Directories
browseable = no
writable = yes

I can actually see and write to the share via an XP machine, I can't see or write to the share via a Linux machine. I tried scaling the samba options back as you suggested, for some reason I still can't see the share?

Have you created other shares apart from this? Are you able to access these other shares through Linux?

If you haven't created other shares, you could try creating one and see if you can access it through a Linux machine. If you're not able to see even these shares, it could be a problem with your Samba setup.

What app or commands are you using on the linux box to see network shares?
Are all the machines in the same subnet?
Can the server itself see its own shares?

I'll try creating another share. I actually posted all the changes that I made to the smb.conf file, apart from the workgroup name. Yes all the machines are on the same subnet. I haven't tried viewing the shares from the smb server itself, I'm using Trustix which doesn't include a Window Manager, so I wouldn't even know how to go about doing that.

As far as the Linux machine goes, I've been using the Network browser in Ubuntu, and the SMB browser in SuSE. I can see my XP workstation and the Trustix server from the Linux workstations I just can't see the share's.
