Samba share not accessible access is denied error message


Hi there --

I have Samba 3.5.3-61 running on a Fedora Core 13 system. I created a share that is browseable to all systems, and I made sure to create a user account via the smbpasswd utility.

When I try to connect to the server from a Windows XP system, I am able to enter the appropriate sharename as well as the username and password. However, after entering the information, I get the following error message:

Quote:
Samba share is not accessible. Access is denied.
The share does appear as a mapped drive on the Windows system, I just can't access it.

Has anyone seen this before, and know what I need to do in order to correct it? Thanks.

What do the logs on the Samba server have in them?

I checked the log.smbd, and there were several instances of the following entry:

The messages log file had the following entries:

So, what's using that port? This script does a nice job of marrying ports to pid's. http://www.brandonhutchinson.com/Por...with_lsof.html

In order to sort these things out, I open a bunch of ssh sessions then run a samba application in each window keeping them in the foreground so you can watch what's happening. For example, smbd -d 3.
