I have configured samba on Fedora Core 4, from my windows machine I can see the samba server, I can log in with user and password (iam not sure why I need this as the smb.conf should be open to all, but if i dont i cant see anything).
I can brows the 2 shared folders and the printer, but if I click on the shared folders to drill down i get a message "\\samba\test is not accessible. You might not have permissions to use this network resource".
The file permissions for this share are 777 open to all, If i put in a knoppix 3.9 cd and run the samba service no problems at all, i can do as i please. The SUfirewall is disabled, iptables report zero entries, ipchains says no service running.
I can ping either machine from either machine. if I do nmblookup ... it returns the ip of the XP box.
Any help would be great as I am tearing my hear out.
workgroup = HER02
netbios name = samba
dns proxy = no
preferred master = yes
Originally posted by tyrie Thanks Tino27, I have tried everything on that web site, I could open the new folder it created, but again could not read or write to it or the others as access is denied.
Any other hints ?
logged on as root?
check the mode of the files with a "ls -l" command. The modes are on the far left of the screen, deals with read write access of root, user, group and execute bit. pull up a man page on chmode with "man chmode" if the mode is not set to allows access to it.

Thanks Texas, this did show that the access was not as I had expected to see it, but still did not help with the problem. I have now done a completely fresh install of FC4, I used swat to set up the share etc but still I can only see the samba box and the shares titles listed in the samb.conf, I cant actually get into the shares and read or write to them, just comes up with the same error as posted in the opening of this thread.
I was wondering if my network may have something to do with it. I use a Cisco ADSL router / modem for my network and it is set to DHCP so there are no wins servers etc, but the machines still browse ok and I can see the others no problems.
I am using Fedora Core 1. I was also having the same problem with samba. But after a fresh installation, it is working fine. I don't know if u have set up the 'security = share' , 'public = yes' , guest ok = yes' options in the /etc/samba/smb.conf file. I am new to it but that's all what I did to make it work.
