Client connection problems with Samba And Win XP Pro


Hello.

I'm trying to get samba to work correctly.
I have gotten samba to work correctly in the past
and am a little frustraited with my current results.

smbd & nmbd are running.

my smb.conf is pretty straight forward and is infact
the same as when i had samba running correctly (2 installs ago).

the problem occurs when i try to connect via my winxp box.
here I am attempting to connect from dos...

***BEGIN DOS***

C:\>NET USE P: \\192.168.0.3\musicsrv /YES
Enter the user name for '192.168.0.3': hewson
Enter the password for 192.168.0.3:
System error 53 has occurred.

The network path was not found.

***END DOS***

(192.168.0.3 is my linux box & musicsrv is the name of the share)
(this is the dos version of adding a network drive as most of howtos)

any suggestions?

I assume that you have tries to ping it.
Make sure iptables is not blocking it.
As a test flush all the rules.
iptables -F;
iptables -P INPUT ACCEPT;
iptables -P OUTPUT ACCEPT;
If not post you smb.conf file. What distro you are using.
If you are user security=USER make sure that you setup the samba user using smbpasswd.
If it still does not work then
Post you smb.conf file. What distro you are using?
ps -ef | grep smb
ps -ef | grep nmb
netstat -pan

Every time you reboot, your iptables get configured the same way (the way it doesn't work for you). I am not a Fedora user but that is in essence your problem. Browse around /etc/init.d/ (and rc3.d or similar) and find where the iptables get initialized. This should lead you to the configuration files...

Configure iptables the way you want it and then save the changes using the save argument to the startup script /etc/init.d/iptables.

iptables -F
iptables -INPUT -P ACCEPT;
iptables -OUTPUT -P ACCEPT;

/etc/init.d/iptalbes save;
Now you have no firewall rules.
