Can't access the linux shares from the Windows xp


Hello Friends
I have installed the RHEL5 in vmware workstation. i can access everything of guestos RHEL from the host os winxp.
I use putty to take remote of guest os RHEL5, i can run the rdesktop command from the guest os RHEL5 to access host winxp.
i mean to say i can access both via varsa .

I have installed the samba server and client in RHEL 5 .
I can access the shares of xp machine from the linux system.
but i can't access the shares of linux system from the xp machine .
i can see that system in the mynetwork places from the xp machine , but when i click on it , says that "you might not have permission to access the network resources "

Here is the configuration file of samba server
The ip address
xp : 192.168.0.101
linux : 192.168.0.123
gateway=192.168.0.1

does your windows system have support for ext* file systems? windows uses ntfs, fat etc. file systems and I am not sure how you would go about adding support for other file systems.

see what kind of file system your linux os is running on and add support for that file system on your windows operating system.

It doesn't matter what file system the samba server is using, windows isn't going to be mounting the file system.

Have you defined samba users? Since you are using user level security with guest turned off, I believe you will have to define the samba users on the server. Look here for a quick how-to.
