Question Creating a Samba-Server: Error: Password prompt pops up again and forever.


Hi!

I have a problem creating a samba server.

MY GOAL: To transfer some gigabytes of data from my Laptop "Nocturne" 192.168.1.17 to my big computer "Volvox" 192.168.1.14.

MY IDEA: To open a samba server on my big computer and share the home folder, open it with dolphin on my Laptop
and finally send the files via drag and drop.

THE SITUATION: Both computers run Slackware 13.1, 32-bit version.

THIS IS WHAT I DID:

1.) Created /etc/samba/smb.conf like this:

[global]
workgroup = Linux
server string = Volvox Server
security = user
load printers = no
log file = /var/log/samba.%m
max log size = 50
socket options = TCP_NODELAY

[home]
comment = Home Directory
path = /home/daniel/
valid users = danielsambaguest
writable = yes
browseable = yes

2.) adduser danielsambaguest
3.) smbpasswd -a danielsambaguest
4.) /etc/rc.d/rc.samba restart
5.) On my laptop: Open Dolphin, click on Network, Samba Shares, Linux, volvox(Volvox Server), home
and enter danielsambaguest and the password.

THE PROBLEM:

After entering the password only another password prompt pops up like the password was wrong. I checked it several
times, so I know the password was not wrong and is not the problem.

LOG FILES:

/var/log/samba.nocturne contains this afterwards:

QUESTION:

Can you help me?

Did you create the share in the directory configuration?

A directory can be shared in Samba but, as far as I know, if you don't tell the directory that it is shared, it will refuse Samba's invitations.

In Konqueror, you would highlight the directory, right-click, select properties, and go to sharing. I assume Dolphin will be similar. You may have to do this as root.

Also, it's not a good idea to share your home directory; I'm not even sure you can. It opens up all those hidden configuration files to the network.

It's better to create a shared folder within your home directory.

Good reference on Samba here:

Well I guess you have to use same usename and password for your Samba-Server and the machine you are trying to access.
