Samba+Windows 2000


Hi all,

I have set a common folder to be shared from all machines on the LAN via Samba. All the XP Pro machines can see it in the network neighborhood but I have just mapped the folder as a drive so it is easily accesable from "my computer".

Our lone Windows 2000 machine can also see it but not access it either from NN or as a mapped drive. If you click on it, the machine simply hangs for a few seconds. These machines can ping each other and no firewall is in place. The Windows 2000 machine was not set up with a login or password (not my doing) but neither are any of the XP machines.

All the posts I have found on the Internet deal with machines that either cannot even see the Samba machine or have login failure but not the problem I am having.

Any ideas?

Jim

Can you access a share on any other machine? For example, can you access a share on one for the winXP machines from the win2k one?

Just and idea...not sure if this will help. Let me know...

It is a long time ago that I had to deal with samba, but I remember (at least) two different access methods: share and user-level security. Maybe the Win2k machine is set to user-level security and tries to authenticate itself, while all other machines use the share-level. Just a guess...

To DoubleO-

Yes it can and does share files and a printer with a few other XP machines.

To Abisko-

That is possible. I will have to look into how to go about changing that.

Thanks, and keep em coming...

Jim
