issues with win7 and Samab


I just installed CentOS 6.3 64bit, yum -y update, then tried configuring samba so my win7 box could connect to the /mnt/users share point. I have set SELinux to passive and rebooted, I have stopped both iptables and ip6tables, I have added 192.168.2. to my /etc/hosts none of these have worked.

I have also done the following on the win7 box:

======================
Local Computer Policy->Computer Configuration->Windows Settings->Security Settings->Local Policies->Security Options

Find the policy:

Microsoft network client: Digitally sign communications (always)

If this is enabled, change it to Disabled. Be sure and restart your machine for the change to take effect! Pressing the "Apply" button in the Policy Editor after the change is made is not sufficient...

==========================


Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Local Security Policy

Local Policies - Security Options



Network security: LAN Manager authentication level
Send LM & NTLM responses

Minimum session security for NTLM SSP
Disable Require 128-bit encryption



my SMB server worked after changing those two options

=============================

then rebooted the win7 box. nothing seems to have worked. Help please. See below for testparm on my server.
Code:
[root@sparky ~]# testparm
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
rlimit_max: increasing rlimit_max (1024) to minimum Windows limit (16384)
Processing section "[homes]"

did make a slight modification that also did not help. changed the browseable = no to yes for the LVM section. win7 still does not like this.

slowly making progress. turns out the lions share of the issues came from TCP/IP NetBIOS helper being disabled on the win7 box. Now it can see the server to be prompted for a p/w, but no further.

Code:
[root@sparky ~]# cat /etc/samba/smb.conf 
# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too
# many!) most of which are not shown in this example
#
# For a step to step guide on installing, configuring and using samba, 
# read the Samba-HOWTO-Collection. This may be obtained from:
#  http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/Samba-HOWTO-Collection.pdf
#
# Many working examples of smb.conf files can be found in the 
# Samba-Guide which is generated daily and can be downloaded from: 
#  http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/Samba-Guide.pdf
#
# Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash) 
# is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a #
# for commentry and a ; for parts of the config file that you
# may wish to enable
#
# NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command "testparm"
# to check that you have not made any basic syntactic errors. 
#
#---------------
# SELINUX NOTES:
#
# If you want to use the useradd/groupadd family of binaries please run:
# setsebool -P samba_domain_controller on
#
# If you want to share home directories via samba please run:
# setsebool -P samba_enable_home_dirs on
#
# If you create a new directory you want to share you should mark it as
# "samba_share_t" so that selinux will let you write into it.
# Make sure not to do that on system directories as they may already have
# been marked with othe SELinux labels.
#
# Use ls -ldZ /path to see which context a directory has
#
# Set labels only on directories you created!
# To set a label use the following: chcon -t samba_share_t /path
#
# If you need to share a system created directory you can use one of the
# following (read-only/read-write):
# setsebool -P samba_export_all_ro on
# or
# setsebool -P samba_export_all_rw on
#
# If you want to run scripts (preexec/root prexec/print command/...) please
# put them into the /var/lib/samba/scripts directory so that smbd will be
# allowed to run them.
# Make sure you COPY them and not MOVE them so that the right SELinux context
# is applied, to check all is ok use restorecon -R -v /var/lib/samba/scripts

the problem is 100% on win7. ill gather everything I have done to that system to resolve the issue, but none of the google search hints have helped other then to re-enable the TCP/IP NetBIOS helper.

I was just successful at testing the connection to the samba server via my laptop running OSx that has a VM of WinXP. the winXP has zero issues getting connected, reading, and writing data to the share.
