Unable to connect to Samba share (XP client, RHES5 server)
Red Hat ES 5.2
[root@intranet samba]# rpm -qa |grep samba
When I try to connect to the share from my XP machine, I get a "network path cannot be found" error message.
Below is the entry in /var/log/samba/samba.log
[2008/11/19 11:57:51, 0] smbd/service.c:make_connection_snum(1003)
'/server2/test' does not exist or permission denied when connecting to [server2] Error was Permission denied
Here is my smb.conf file:
# Server name
server string = Intranet Server (Primary)
# These are the default password settings.
; encrypt passwords = yes
; smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
# Define NT domain/workgroup name.
workgroup = intranet
# Security mode. (See SAMBA documentation for details.)
; security = user
# Restrict conections to specific IP addresses.
hosts allow = all
# The %m variable sets a separate log file for each
# connecting machine.
# log file = /var/log/samba-log.%m
# Keep it basic - one file!
log file = /var/log/samba/samba.log
# The number of minutes inactivity before a connection is
# disconnected. (This disconnection should be transparent to most
# clients, which an have auto-reconnect feature. Removing inactive
# connections is to preserve the server's resources.)
deadtime = 10
# These socket options are suggested in the default smb.conf file.
# Who am I to disagree?
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
# Define both Ethernet interfaces. (Otherwise, I suspect only one
# will be configured??)
interfaces = eth0 eth1
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
; guest ok = no
; guest account = nobody
comment = server2
path = /server2/test
write list = @intranet
force create mode = 775
force directory mode = 2775
writeable = yes
; browseable = yes
valid users = intranet
/server2 and /server2/test are owned by user intranet and both directories have permissions set to 777.
Has anyone come across this problem in the past?
