This is somewhat embarrassing. I have been using Samba and smbmount
for some time now in order to access Win2K shares from a Linux
system. I used to use ICS with 2 NIC's on the Win2k machine to
provide connections to the Linux box for file sharing and Inet access.
I recently switched to a Linksys router which provides all my Inet
connectivity and file sharing.
I haven't changed the Samba setup since it should work with a router
as it did the previous configuration. However, I now cannot mount
the Win2k shares using smbmount; I get
1237: tree connect failed: ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess (Access denied.)
SMB connection failed
I have users and passwords setup properly, I think, and I specify
null passwords = yes
guest ok = yes
guest account = nobody
; encrypt passwords = yes
I haven't needed to use encrypt passwords, I suppose because null
passwords are allowed.
However, I cannot figure out whay this unaltered setup will not
work now; the only change is utilization of a router.
BTW: Internet connectivity works just fine and I can see the Linux
shares in Network Neighborhood.
Can anyone help me out here?
