Cannot connect to Samba Server share from windows 2000 or xp pro machines
I just installed unbuntu for the first time ever and I was completely amazed that it actually worked! All of the hardware in the box booted right up without a hesitation. Within a few minutes I was able to surf the internet. This is the first time that I have installed an os on a computer and didn't have to go to battle with the operating system just to get the computer to boot fully fuctional. :-)
I am however stumped at the moment, I installed the ubuntu samba server and designated one of the hard drives in the box to be a shared file. I am able to ping all the machines from each other. The unbuntu machine can read and write to all the machines on the network. I cannot however do the reverse. When I try to log into the Samba server it gives me the "incorrect password or unknown users" error. I am using the same login/pass for all machines on the network.
I would like to get the server to be accessible on the network, have a shared file that I could put archive files in and hot swap the drive when it is full. I plan to replace the drive with another so that I don't have to burn dvds for my file archives.
What do I need to do in order to be seen from the windows machines?
