Samba Question/Woe


Hi all

Ok, new to this so please bear with me!

I have a Knoppix box and XP Box, peer2peer style networked. I want to use Samba to share files.

I opened /etc/samba/smb.conf and make a few changes, namely setting the workgroup name and stuff. I also did the testparm /etc/samba/smb.conf and it came up ok.

On my XP Box, in Network Places I can see the Knoppix box but on double clicking I cant log in. I trid usernames for Root and as Normal User but they didnt work. What gives?

Also, now when I open Samba Network Neighbourhood on the Knoppix box I get 'Please Provide Authentication for' and again, I dont know what to put.

Also, related but seperate problem. I created a folder in Home called Shared, for that reason: I want to share it. But upon clicking on OK, it says 'Sharing /Home/xxx/Shared failed' under Details it says Please Make sure the Perl Script fileshareset is suid Root'. ???

Thanks for any help! Linux is hard to learn after only Windows experience but very enjoyable!!

HOng

I have a similar issue. I can see my linux box from xp in my network neihborhood but when I try to browse it I keep getting an error saying I don' t have permission to use the network, please contact the network admin of this server. I have tried everything it seems to get it working but I still cannot.
