Verify the IP settings on the XP box (IP address, subnet mask). Try to ping yourself. Can you ping the Linux box using your win box? Do you still have link lights? Can either box see any other member of the network?

Might check and see if either box has any arp table entries...

lazarus,

I'm thinking about migrating to WinXP from Win98 myself. Since you offered, I'd like to get the details just in case I run into the same problem when I do upgrade to WinXP.

Appreciate it, thanks!

Hi all
When I changed my NIC all worked ok without the registry tweak.
Winxp reported my old NIC as working ok but I could not even ping to it from linux. it seems not all ne2000 clones are equal.
the registry tweak if u need it is:-
hkey_local_machine\system\CurrentControleSet\Services\netlogon\parameters\"RequiresSignorSeal"=dword :00000000
Originaly it is set to 1.
On my smb.conf I have security=share. Security is not much of an issue on my small setup.
Hope this is of help.

Wink 2.2.1a Samba SWAT

:)

Thank you very much for the key modification.

Any one know where I can find the swat --- RPM?

Also while I'm thinking about it, what's the difference
in i386, i686, and regular RPMS?

I find it confusing which to use when all three are listed together.

Ray

I do not use swat. A very good place to look for rpm's is:-
www.rpmfind.net
I think i386 is for 386 and 486 type cpu's. and i686 is for pentium
type chips. If in doupt i386 should work for all intel type
processors the i686 should run slightly faster on the newer chips.
There are also rpm's around for other processors such as ia64.
All my pc's here use intel (pentium) processors but amd et al
should all work fine.

Samba and Windows XP

Greetings all have, I needs some help with Samba and Windows XP, I can see the Samba server on my Windows XP box but when I try to connect to it I get the following message.

\\camalot is not accesable. You might not have permission to access this network resource.

Any ideas this is driving me nuts

When you installed Redhat I bet you chose the default firewall settings. This blocks ports 137-139 that Samba uses. It will allow you to see the server but not access it. You can correct this problem using iptables to unblock those ports. Maybe someone here will be nice enough to tell you how. I don't know how, I chose to do a reinstall with no firewall since I have a hardware firewall.

Samba and Windows XP

Ok I have disabled the Firewall I think, although I tried to set it up to allow everything through, do you think there could be something else I am doing wrong

Samba and Windows XP

Thanks a bunch your advice was spot on, after removing the firewall, when I double click my Samba Server I now get a logon prompt now I need to find out how the Samba server handles logon requests and where I setup user accounts when I double click and type a known user on the linux machine I get the box back again almost as if the user name or password is not recognised, any ideas, Windows XP seems to want to log me on as \machinename\username and password

Getting WindowsXP to work with Samba is a major pain. I got it working about half, but still not the way I want it.

For starters, getting WindowsXP to logon to a Samba domain is only possible with v2.2.2 and later. Next, you have to run a registry patch on the XP machine:

http://www.staceman.net/stuff/samba_...ain_member.reg

You also may need to run a plain password registry patch on the XP machine:

http://www.staceman.net/stuff/winxp_plainpassword.reg

This may or may not be neccessary, I'm not sure. Newer versions of Samba support encrypted passwords, like Windows uses by default. On mine, I turned encrypted passwords off in smb.conf, and ran the registry patch. If I click on a share on the domain server, it prompts me for a password, and it lets me in. Before running the plain password thing, it didn't work, and would just ask for the password over and over. I believe there were other changes I had to make in the conf file as well, but I can't remember what they were exactly, sorry.

All that works OK, but now that I finally got XP to recognise the domain, I can't get it to logon properly. I got it to join the domain, and after that, I now get the old-style username/password/domain logon prompt. I have it set so that the usernames on the XP machine are the same usernames set up on the Linux Samba domain server, same passwords and all. However, when I attempt to logon to the domain server at startup, it says that it can't find the profile, and is using a temporary, unsavable one instead, and it gives the reason as being an invalid username/password. If I change the domain to the local machine, it brings up the proper profile as normal.

I have been pulling my hair out all evening trying to figure this out. I don't see why it can't be as simple to setup as it is on a 9x/ME machine. I have an ME machine on my network set up basically the same way, and it works flawlessly.

Good Luck.

Windows XP and Samba

I recently upgraded my laptop form Win2K Pro to WinXPPro.

My laptop normally logs in to my company's domain. Under Win2K, when I came home I could login to my Samba server with the user name and password.

Under XP, when I enter the username and password I get an error that the user could not be verified by the domain controller.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Never mind... I got it.

When the username/password dialog box comes up, enter the server's ip address / username, i.e., 10.200.10.10/user1
and the password. That worked just fine.

Thanks anyway
