samba connection failed
I'm using Ubuntu 10.10. I've installed Samba by apt-get install samba.

My samba.conf is

workgroup = LinuxSir
netbios name = LinuxSir05
server string = Linux Samba Server TestServer
security = share
path = /opt/linuxsir
writeable = yes
browseable = yes
guest ok = yes

The permission of linuxsir directory is 777.
I've run smbd and nmbd.


smbclient -L //LinuxSir05
Enter loveright's password:
Connection to LinuxSir05 failed (Error NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME)

How to solve the problem?
I do not need any security consideration, I only want to make it work.

The bad network name error is due to the hostname; Have you tried using the IP address of the host? And also, I highly recommend changing the permissions to your directory, since 777 gives ALL users read, write, and execute permissions.

it works
Thank you for you suggestion.

I try using ip, it shows
loveright 12:16:38 opt$ smbclient -L
Enter loveright's password:
Domain=[LINUXSIR] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.5.4]
Server requested LANMAN password (share-level security) but 'client lanman auth' is disabled
tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

then, in /etc/samba/smb.conf, in [global], I add "client lanman auth = yes".

Now it really works. Thank you very much.
