Angry Problem in Accessing folder from windows xp to fedora's shared folder


Asalam o Alaikum!

I have created samba server and share a folder. When I try to access it from windows "start ---> Run----> \\192.168.1.10\share_folder"

Then a (GUI) prompt appears and ask for the password of user "Guest" I did not create any user name guest and I don't have its passwords. I have already added this line

Valid user = root uk

also smbpasswd -a root uk is done. I am not able to access folder with these user IDs.

Please help!

Check your SELinux rules, your firewall, your /etc/hosts.deny file, make sure the correct services are running (e.g. nmbd) and check your /etc/smb.conf file (the line that may be of particular interest is the "security = <something>" line.

Selinux is already disabled.

Problem is resolved, there is option in /etc/smb.conf

security = share

I replaced share with user then I was allowed to access the linux's shared folder with desire user from windows.

there is another problem with me when I try to mount shared folder from windows to linux then:

[root@localhost mnt]# mount -t smbfs //192.168.1.253/Win_sharing /media/
mount: unknown filesystem type 'smbfs'

Please let me know its solution.

Wait, are you trying to mount a Windows share now form Linux, or are you trying to mount from Linux to the Samba share you made?
