From what I can tell from reading various sources I have my smb.conf set up right and when i do a testparm it doesn't give me any errors yet when I try to access the samba share from my xp box it gives me an error saying I don't have permission to access. Is there some other config file I need to check or change? Any other ideas on what I need to do? I'm running slackware 9. Thanks for any help.
I just wanted to add that I've read most people who have problems similar to this mention being able to at least give their username/password but I get the error before this. I can also access my xp box from my linux box so I know something is going right. Thanks again.
thanks for reply, I tried what you recommended and it still won't even get to where it will prompt for a user/pass, it just gives an error that I dont have permission to access. The icon for the samba share is visible on the xp box, just can't open it. From reading many different sources I haven't seen anyone else with a problem like this, most people get prompted for the user/pass at least and thats where their problem exists. Any other input would be much appriciated.
it really stumps me that i can ping each box from the other, i can access the xp box from my linux box, but the security = user option wont work like it seems to so easily in most cases. the security = share doesnt seem to be working either. I am pretty new to linux, only been using it for a little over a week but this is the first real hurddle ive ran into.
