Samba question: Access for Windows users. Server not on domain.
Hi! This is my first post here. Thank you for a great resource.
I have a Fedora 17 server for which I have a static IP from the campus, but it is not part of the domain. I'd like to give Windows users (who are part of the campus domain) access to shares.
I've added shares in Samba and have made them visible and read/writable. I've also enabled Samba through the firewall.
When I try to add the share on Windows, I'm getting a few different problems depending on the machine on which I am working.
On one machine, it says that my access is denied.
When you add a network place in windows, you need to specify on which domain you are a part, but since the Linux box is not part of the domain, could this be the issue? When the user types out the user's name, should the I type in the username area: nameofthebox\username?
