I have two networking questions thaty invlolve SAMBA.
NOTE: OS is SuSE Linux 7.3 Professional (complete install)
1.) I have managed to set up Samba in such a way that Windows XP / Windows 2000 can both see and open shares! Here's the challenge: I cannot give write/delete access to windows! For example, I cannot create a folder or copy a file onto such a samba share! Below are two sections of my smb.conf file for your reference. Note that the security is set to SHARE level to protect individual shares, and the share "share" is set up to full read/write/execute privelages/permissions!
workgroup = PearlJamRox
os level = 2
kernel oplocks = No
security = share
encrypt passwords = Yes
guest account = Nobody
map to guest = Bad User
comment = Linux Shared Resource
read only = no
2.) So yes, We can have windows see the shares just fine. Here's a problem: Linux Can't! If I try to access a share from another Linux machine, it fails to even see the share under LinNeighbourhood! The SAME SHARE on the same machine is accessed just fine in windows!
NOTE: I think this has to do with "encrypted" paswords. Any ideas anyone?
Can Anyone help???
NOTE: I cannot post the entire smb.conf file here. I tried to use copy/paste but it didn't work under linux. Homestead and geocities do not allow Linux or a .conf file extension. Sorry!
