I tend to use linux computers to run my network - router, print/file server, proxy, home theater, etc. But I also use windows for any non-specialized machine where I sit down and do work.
Recently I installed Windows 7 Professional (RTM) through MSDN on my home desktop. Everything is working out great, except that connecting to my Samba based file server is broken. Now it's asking for logon credentials and booting me off when I have none to give, or put in garbage.
Sometimes, if I browse to the file server through the network explorer, it works fine. It never works if I just type in \\fileserver into the run dialog.
Everything works great on my Windows XP, Ubuntu, and Windows 98 boxes. The server is running a fully updated Arch Linux install, with a samba configuration file that's worked for me for years. Here's what's in it:
workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = ""
security = share
guest account = ftp
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log size = 50
local master = yes
domain master = yes
os level = 33
preferred master = yes
wins support = yes
dns proxy = no
Any thoughts would be very much appreciated!
EDIT: Whoops, this should go in the server forum... I'll see about getting a mod to move it. Sorry about that!
