Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I installed and configured samba on a Centos 5.0 server and created a share [backup] that i want to make available in our windows environment. I am using the following smb.conf file:
workgroup = DOMAIN
Netbios name = SERVERNAME
realm = XX.DOMAIN.NET
preferred master = no
server string = Samba file and print server
security = ADS
encrypt passwords = yes
log level = 3
log file = /var/log/samba/%m
max log size = 50
printcap name = cups
printing = cups
comment = Home Directories
valid users = %S
read only = No
browseable = No
comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/samba
browseable = no
printable = yes
guest ok = no
writable = no
comment = share backup files
path = /home/share
public = no
writable = yes
browseable = yes
printable = no
create mask = 0765
I added the samba server to the windows 2003 domain (net ads join), but when i am trying to access the samba share through windows explorer i get the following message "no network provider accepted the given network path".
I already checked the following:
-i used testparm to check the smb.conf file
-i ran "kinit" to check kerboros
-i confirmed that our samba server was available in Active directory
-i used "smb status" to check that the samba service is running
I searched several websites in order to solve my problem, but i can't seem to get it work.
You were right about the firewall. I added port 137-139 and 445 in the iptables file, and after a restart i was able to access my share through windows explorer. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction.
