SMB Share Issues with Windows Vista & 7
So I've already edited the registry entry necessary to see linux samba shares. However, I'm still running into an issue with even the most basic shares. I am running Fedora Core 10 and building a NAS out of it. Everything's kosher so far but I can't get the Samba shares up and running. I'll worry about writeable user share later but right now I have the following smb.conf file:
workgroup = WORKGROUP
netbios name = NUVNETNAS
security = share
path = /home/NAS
read only = Yes
guest only = Yes
I've set up the firewall to allow Samba client and server traffic and set my file permissions for /home/NAS to 775. Yet I still get the following message:
Windows cannot acesss \\NUVNETNAS\NAS_PUBLIC
Check the spelling of the name. Otherwise there might be a problem with your network. To try to identify and resolve network problems, click Diagnose.
Could it have something to do with the fact that I set up my NAS in the home directory? Is there some SELinux policy that would hamper this? Thanks in advance for serious replies!
