When attempting to access a public file on the server using a XP client machine and the IP address of my server, I am asked a user name and password and then the Share folder is seen. But Windows sends a message: Share is not accessible.
I found it! My samba config was not complete-
using the Administration- SERVER Settings - Samba sub-menu - choosing Preferences -Samba Users tab, Also I had to choose 'user' in the server setting sub-menu - BASIC tag- All windows users can now access the server- But now i have another issue: Accessing my Share folder from a XP windows client machine is now possible- All users can see the share but clicking on it pops-up a windows message:
:Share is not accessible- You might not have permissions….’
. For test purpose, I gave all permissions to my Share for all users using Samba gui. Still the message pops-up.
Can someone give me a hint- Thank you.
