Post samba server installed on fedora13 but but can't get access from other fedora and XP


I installed samba server on fedora13 last week
and share some files from samba server GUI
I also created samba user and password for shared folders

but I can't get access samba share folder from neither fedora machine nor Windows XP

When I open samba share from other fedora such as smb://192.168.10.2
I can see share file and when I browse folder, password required box is appeared but after I put samba username and password

the Error message is Unable to mount location Failed to mount Windows share

even when I browsed samba share from windows xp

error message is \\192.168.10.2\smbshare is not accessible. you might not persioon to use this network resource. Contact the administrator
The network path was not found.


Please, guide me how can I get access samba share from both fedora and XP




that is what I installed on server

[root@fedora2 mnt]# rpm -qa samba*
samba-winbind-clients-3.5.2-60.fc13.i686
samba-swat-3.5.8-74.fc13.i686
samba-client-3.5.8-74.fc13.i686
samba-3.5.8-74.fc13.i686
samba-common-3.5.8-74.fc13.i686
