Samba Problem


Hi everybody,

I recently modded my Xbox and installed Xebian 1.1.4, hoping to use it as a fileserver/gameserver as well as a console. While I have played around with RH9 and Debian, this is my first time setting up a permament Linux system, as I'm an experienced hardware modder/overclocker/voltmodder/gamer and generally require a 'doze box for most of my apps (unfortuneatly). At moment I don't have a convenient TV for gui access, so I'm doing most of the configging via ssh from my pc. While everything has gone fine so far, I'm having some problems with samba/swat. While the xbox is visible from My Network Places, I cannot login, and none of my accounts work whatsoever. I also cannot access swat, and when I type the xbox ip and swat port with http (192.168.123.180:901) in firefox it says that the connection was refused. Here's a copy of my smb.conf file:

[global]

workgroup = workgroup
netbios name = Xbox
encrypt passwords = yes
unix password sync = yes
null passwords = yes
smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd

[homes]
read only = no
browseable = no

[music]
path = /music
browseable = yes
public = yes
read only = no

I've got a feeling this has something to do with user accounts, but I'm not sure. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for helping a .

have you added a Samba user account?
smbpasswd -a username

Wow. That was really easy, thanks much fu.

Anybody have any idea with swat? It's not a problem if that issue never gets resolved, but it'd be nice to have around.

No problem, and for the Swat issue I may be wrong, but refused usually means a firewall issue.You might need to open a port up.

Alright thanks, just one last question, I can now see all the shares in the system, but I can't write to any of them, even though I used chmod 777 on all of them. Is there something I have to change account wise?
