Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

What happens if you go to Win Vista > start > network and several minutes for the samba share to appear?
If it appears and you click on it, does it give you a login prompt?
If you get the samba share login prompt, can you not just login with the uid/pw from the linux machine that is being shared?
Do you have identical accounts/passwords on both Vista and Linux/Samba?
When browse the network NUVNETNAS is the first thing to come up actually, so the server's responding pretty quickly. There is no login prompt for this particular share. However, when I was trying to set up a network share I got a similar error message. My samba account is not similar to my windows account though (user is nasuser :/). When I did have authentication, I had made sure to smbpasswd -a the nasuser.
TO REITERATE THOUGH:
This is just a bare public share and should work as a read-only share that does not require authentication. I am not prompted for a login when I access it but get the error after about 15/20 seconds :/.
Your original post seems to indicate that the link is trying to take you to a non-existant location "NAS_PUBLIC".
What happens if you create user "NAS_PUBLIC" so that there is a folder /home/NAS_PUBLIC to go to?
It definitely not the firewall. I can access Windows shares from THIS linux box, just not visa versa. I have a linux laptop that I can still access shares from my Vista/Windows 7 machine with no trouble, so it has to be something with this machine. Both Fedora and my Vista/Windows 7 firewalls are configured correctly.
Sorry I tend to Check things like this rather than assume my configuration is perfect.. It's not troubleshooting if you don't verify.
Just because you can go out through a firewall does not mean you can initiate a connection outside and come back through.
best of luck, I hope your assumptions are correct.
if that value is set to 3, change it to a 1 and try to connect again.
Have already done that :/ and as I mentioned prior I have a linux-laptop with shares that I can access without issue. I'm 99.9% certain this is a fedora/samba issue at this point. Is there any windows logs I could access that could help me figure out what error specifically caused this issue? The event viewer doesn't seem to log this issue :/.
I'd take a punt on an SELinux issue. Try disabling it temporarily with "setenforce =0" and see if it works. If that fixes the problem, read
# SELINUX NOTES:
# If you want to use the useradd/groupadd family of binaries please run:
# setsebool -P samba_domain_controller on
# If you want to share home directories via samba please run:
# setsebool -P samba_enable_home_dirs on
# If you create a new directory you want to share you should mark it as
# "samba-share_t" so that selinux will let you write into it.
# Make sure not to do that on system directories as they may already have
# been marked with othe SELinux labels.
# Use ls -ldZ /path to see which context a directory has
# Set labels only on directories you created!
# To set a label use the following: chcon -t samba_share_t /path
# If you need to share a system created directory you can use one of the
# following (read-only/read-write):
# setsebool -P samba_export_all_ro on
# setsebool -P samba_export_all_rw on
# If you want to run scripts (preexec/root prexec/print command/...) please
# put them into the /var/lib/samba/scripts directory so that smbd will be
# allowed to run them.
# Make sure you COPY them and not MOVE them so that the right SELinux context
# is applied, to check all is ok use restorecon -R -v /var/lib/samba/scripts
follow the instructions and re-enable SELinux with "etenforce 1". These are CentOS5 instructions, but should be good for F10
Sorry about the late update (just got around to trying SELinux stuff today. All of the issues I was running into were due to SELinux Policies that weren't checked off. Also I needed to set the guest user on the system to nasuser which had ownership permissions on the files). Thanks for the help everyone!
