wierd Samba issue
I am having a strange occurance with Samba.
I have two directories shared on my linux box called download
path = /home/download
valid users = name name
public = no
writeable = yes
printable = yes
create mask = 0765
path = /home/samba-public
guest ok = yes
writable = yes
Here is the problem: Everything was working fine 3 days ago.
In the mean time I have been trying to set up this system as an ftp server. I have firewall set to medium.
2 days ago I suddenly couldn't write to either directory from any windows boxes. I could read okay but not write.
Now, the download directory shows up in network neighborhood on all my windows boxes as a printer icon!
The public directory shows up just fine. I have no printers set up in my smb.conf file.
I am guessing there is something wrong with my smbpasswd file. I made it from my passwd file and manually deleted all the users I didn't want in text editor. I did this because I had all the system passwords like qmail, root, halt dameon, etc in my resulting smbpasswd file. I tried re-adding just the users I wanted with smbpasswd but it didn't help.
I understand that samba uses ports 137-139. Are they are being blocked? If that were the case I would think I couldn't access [public].
