Question Samba share not accessible


Hello,

So close and yet... I'm just setting up a samba system, and just when I thought I was all done, I get this error when connecting to the samba share from an XP client: "\\Smoky\/home/documents is not accessible. You might not have permissions to use this network resource. Contact your administrator..."

Samba Box:
Slackware 9.1
Samba 2.2.8a
Computer name: Smoky
Shared: /home/documents
Samba configuration file listed below

Client Box:
Windows XP

I thought that I had licked the username/password problem already. For a long time, from the XP machine, I could see Smoky, but cliking it would give me login box, but no combination of usernames & passwords would work. I finally a user defined on the slackware machine with the same name and password (case sensitive) as my usual account on the XP machine. Once that was finally done, clicking on the Smoky computer from the XP machine would give me two folders:
/home/documents
Printers and Faxes

It is when I open the /home/docuemnts folder that I get the error above.

Also, the permissions on the share are rw for all.

Since I can see the share, doesn't that mean Samba is getting my username and password okay. And if so, then why won't it let me view the share?

I hope someone can help.

Following is my smb.conf file:

I don't know what is wrong here, all I can offer is some suggestions.

Use case mangleing for username and password (it does seem like it is taking your password correctly though.

This problem sounds more like its a permissions problem to me. I know you said that you have given rw permissions to everyone but maybe it's worth a try to make your user that you are trying to access the share with, part of the group (or the owner) that owns the /tmp folder.

Okay, I think I've got it.

From my config file:
[/home/Documents]
comment = Public Docs on Smoky Linux
path = /tmp
read only = No

I was confusing the name of the share with the location of the share. I gave the share name the path I wanted to share and left the path alone.

When I changed it to:
[SmokyShare]
comment = Public Docs on Smoky
path = /home/Documents
read only = no

Then it all worked fine. Oops on my part.
Thanks for the help.
