XP connecting to Samba (Network Path not found)


Hello,

I am having some issues connecting my VMWare Session (Win XP) to my Samba server. This is the error I am getting on XP.

http://tinyurl.com/55pso


I have opened a shell, and ran testparm and this is what I get.

username@linux:~> testparm

Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
Processing section "[homes]"
Processing section "[linuxshare]"
Server's Role (logon server) conflicts with share-level security
Loaded services file OK.
Server role: ROLE_STANDALONE

Press enter to see a dump of your service definitions

# Global parameters
[global]
workgroup = MSHOME
security = SHARE
passwd chat debug = Yes
log file = /var/log/samba/log2madebyme
disable netbios = Yes
server signing = auto
add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd -c Machine -d /var/lib/nobody -s /bin/false %m$
domain logons = Yes
os level = 65
preferred master = Yes
domain master = Yes
ldap idmap suffix = ou=Idmap
ldap machine suffix = ou=Computers
ldap suffix = dc=example,dc=com
ldap ssl = no

[homes]
read only = No
guest ok = Yes
case sensitive = No
msdfs proxy = no

[linuxshare]
path = /home/username/Shared
read only = No
guest ok = Yes
case sensitive = No
msdfs proxy = no




I just do not see what I am doing wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you checked to see if XP has also assumed the role of preferred master & domain master, or possibly allow samba to specify the primary workgroup name and change xp's workgroup to the one you've chosen to use in samba.

Right click My Computer-->Left click on properties-->Network Identification. This is where you can check and change your workgroup windoze.
