Unable to share files from my linux to windows computers through samba
All I wanted to do is to share my files from my FC2 to users from Windows machine. But I don't know why it never work.
I did the following configuration in my /etc/samba/smb.conf
workgroup = myworkgroup
hosts allow = 192.168.0. 127.
Set ENCRYPT PASSWORDS to "yes"
Set SMB PASSWORD FILE to "/etc/smbpasswd"
comment = Home Directories
browseable = no
writable = yes
Now add any other shares you want like this:
comment = Comment
path = /MyMusic
read only = yes
public = yes
Save and exit.
smbpasswd -a user password
service smb restart
Suppose to be very simple and easy. But I just don't know why not work. I go to windows machine, find this linux computer (Potato) there, then I click into it and it says "\\Potato is not accessible. You might not have permission to access this network resouce."
What is wrong....please helpe me....I tried so many days already....
or is there any other way to share a file from my linux to windows computer? I just want to share file to windows computers....
thanks for taking time reading my mail....
