both, you need first, a valid linux user, a valid samba user, a valid windows user, by valid i mean the user account xyz needs to exist in all three occurences. you could also try changing

security=user

to

security=share

good luck.

try adding your user to samba users w/the smbpasswd command. as root from a terminal

smbpasswd -a username
password <enter your password>

you'll also need to create this user in windows.
good luck.

what do you mean by resolve address? can you see the linux machine from network nieghborhood? can you see the windows machine from a browser or linneighborhood? is that what you mean by resolve address?

can you see each box from the other box? what does your edited smb.conf look like, you've made a lot of changes so lets have a look. are you running a firewall on the linux machine?

no, no firewall no anti-virus thingy nothing! free zone =) anyways heres the smb.conf :

[global]

workgroup = LAN
netbios name = wiztop
server string = Samba Server
security = share
encrypt passwords = Yes
socket options = TCP_NODELAY

[homes]
comment = Home Directories
browseable = yes
writeable = yes
guest ok = yes
path = /home/mnt/share/

[share]
comment = shared directory
path=/home/wiz/mnt/Share/WIZ
browseable = yes
writeable = yes
guest ok = yes

just gotta repeat this: i can see "Homes on Samba Server" (Wiztop)" in my windows-networkthingy...tried to go from there but results the same =\

try this, add this to the smb.conf under the shares you already have

[tmp]
comment = tmp share
path=/tmp
browseable = yes
writeable = yes
guest ok = yes

retart the daemons and post the results.
