Unhappy Can't access SMB share from Windows to OpenSuse folder


Hi Guys,

I have a SMB share on my OpenSuse 11 box and I would like to access that folder using my Windows machine. I'm able to find the computer and the folder from my xp machine but when I double click the folder to enter it a pop-up user name and password box comes up. I tried using my windows user name and password to access it but it doesn't work. I also tried using the Suse Box's user name and password but nothing. Can anyone help?
Thank you guys!

At a command line on the OpenSuse box, type:

Code:
smbpasswd <username>
where <username> is the user you want to use. enter a password at the prompt. then restart SAMBA daemons as root:

Code:
/etc/rc.d/rc.samba restart
or
Code:
/etc/init.d/samba restart
or wherever your samba daemon runs from.

Then try using the username and password combo on your windows machine. Please note, in order to see the share, the user you add must own the share on the linux box.
