Question Samba 5670: session setup failed: ERRDOS ?


hi,

I'm currently trying to setup a network with linux fedora core 3, to a windows XP computer...
i have read about 10 diferent samba tutorials... didn't help a thing...

i can do the ping test.. on my linux computer aswel as a ping test from my linux computer to my windows XP computer...

but when i try to connect localy with the code:

mount //localhost/tmp /mnt

i get at first the password: ( i don't know which password it should be so i tryed root, and a samba user password...)

i get the error message:

5670: session setup failed: ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess (Access denied.)
SMB connection failed


i'm trying to setup the network for 2 days now...
i formated my linux 4 different times...


my smb.conf is as followed:
Quote:

# The following are needed to allow password changing from Windows to
# update the Linux system password also.
# NOTE: Use these with 'encrypt passwords' and 'smb passwd file' above.

# and the /etc/resolv.conf file. "host" therefore is system configuration
# dependant. This parameter is most often of use to prevent DNS lookups
# in order to resolve NetBIOS names to IP Addresses. Use with care!

i really hope one of you guys can help me out.. because i'm stuck at this point...

Try this command:

mount -t smbfs -o username=tridge,password=foobar //fjall/test /data/test

Just substitute the (smb) username and (smb) password you want to use. As well as the path of the mount.

Hope this helps.

Be sure your shared directories/folders has proper permissions for users to have access to. If you have SELinux installed, you need to remove the protection of SELinux to smbd and nmbd daemons.

Have you tried adding your users to smbpasswd? If not, add the users that you want to have access to your computer. The command is:

smbpasswd -a <user>

If still that doesnt work and if you are using KDE then I recommend you to install smb4k. Here's the link about this http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...07#post1957207

Hope that helps.

hi,

Itś not my linux computer who can't browser trough the network... my linux computer can read,wright, etc perfectly, but my windows computer can only see my linux computer...

When i try to acces my computer (linux) with the windows machine... it tells me acces denied...

when it should promt for a login name & password..

so i can't even try to login, because it doesn't connect...

so i do not think smb4k will help me, because of what i read... it seems to me that it helps linux computers browser on windows computers... i just need the oppesit of that..

In your smb.conf, uncomment following line:

security = user

Then, add yours users to the smbpasswd (refer to my previous post).

Restart your smb daemon. Try if that would work.

didn't work...

for some strainge reason my linux server is not accepting a connection to be made trough a windows network...
maybe the problem is that my network is working trough a router... on windows this is no problem...
i just use a "workgroup" and no domain...

i'm sure i got something wrong... because a wile ago my linux allowed the windows computer to the login screen... (at that time i didn't have my settings configured correctly..so i couldn't login...)

is there something what i'm doing wrong?

Firewall Is on (because the network is on the same card as my internet connection)
SElinux protection is on (but no samba to allow at SElinux)

Linux Fedora core 3:
Can connect to my self,
can connect to the windows XP computers by browsering the ip: 192.168.2.103

Windows XP:
Connecting with the local network browser
Trying to enter server --> error

With run:
\\192.168.2.102
Trying to connect ---> Error

All errors are before the login screen appears
it says that i'm not allowed to acces the computer and i need to contact the systems administrator...

I really want to step over to linux, but before i do i first need to configure everything correctly... the main part is the network because this computer contains storage places over the network and printer for the hole network..

Sorry about yesterday. Just got something to do and I was not able to look into your samba more closely. Anyway, what I noticed is that your encrypt passwords and smb passwd file settings are commented. I believe you have overwritten it just like the security settings. Can you uncomment that too? Also, I have tried looking at your smbpasswd file and I got an error. I can't read it (maybe different language) but I think it's an error Im getting when trying to view the file.

hi,
no problem about yesterday, i was just wondering what you where doing (since i didn't get a responce)
well i looked up smbpasswd in /etc/samba/smbpasswb didn't look like mutch i can read lol, load of X in the file and now and then a port and a name... (like mysql, devcot, etc)

the smbpasswb file in /usr/bin i couldn't open (i think that was obviouse)

and uncomment the settings... i think i can once i know where to look for
but i tried uncommenting the encryped passwords... but then i got the same error as i did before..

Sample smbpasswd should look like this:
