would that be correct?
It looks perfect at first sight. Your_login_name is the name used from your windows machine. A little but.. I used to study the logs from this process setting it up on my own, but like i said a lot is forgotten and the config files have been deleted with a harddisk crash (windows..). I think that after your username has now been mapped to my_linux_name, you may run into password problem if password my_linux_name<>my_login_name. If you increase the loglevel in your smb.conf (1 is default), up to 2 or 3 or 4 or sth.. you can study the logon ,handshaking, in detail to see where you are rejected. If it is bad username or bad password.
Sorry for not remembering all, but you are def. on the right track and train
There is also a goround.. Windows automatically tries to log on as current user, then as anonymous. And if you have allowed anonymous access, but want to log on as root, you should disconnect the mapped drive on your wndows desktop belonging to the linux server , but that windows automatically mapped read only as "anonymous=nobody" if guest login was allowed. Then you can remap it by using normal Windows "map network drive" wich allowes you to enter different username and password from the your "CurrentUser" credentials
Laughs... Sry my english. not a native
