I was able to connect my linux box to a windows shared printer last night. Dizzy from my technical prowess, and having a 72GB SCSI disk sitting on my little Suse 10.0 PC315 server with nothing on it, I decided to fire up samba and make it available for use from my Window XP machine.
All went well, I can see the share from windows - but when I try to connect, I am asked for a userid and password? I have tried entering root and my root password but no luck.
I have enabled Samba server in firewall for internal and external.
I clicked on the drive icon and made it 'anyone can read and write to this device'.
I have had a trawl about the net and the forums but cannot find anything obvious.
Am I missing an additional configuration step?
