Are you seeing anything in any of the samba logs?

hi michaelk,

I do not receive the error messages after I set the host name and IP address in HOSTS file. But, now I see different error mesage:

\\samba is not accessible. You might not have permission to use the network resource....

Thank you very much for your help.

Another question - you say you opened your firewall by using "iptables -F". That will not necessarily work. Can you show "iptables -L"?

No. I do not see any suspicious logs. But, I think it means that smbd did not receive any request from the client. The log files contains only the log for server's starts and stops.

Also, I just noticed that I gave you wrong information.

I still see the error messages when I run
#net view \\samba command

The error message was "System error 53 has occurred."
"The network path was not found."

MS Tech-net says the error message happned because it could not find the network share resource.

The iptables is:

Quote:
[root@localhost samba]# /sbin/iptables -L
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination
ACCEPT all -- anywhere anywhere state RELATED,ESTABLISHED
ACCEPT icmp -- anywhere anywhere
ACCEPT all -- anywhere anywhere
ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere state NEW tcp dpt:ssh
ACCEPT udp -- anywhere anywhere state NEW udp dpt:netbios-ns
ACCEPT udp -- anywhere anywhere state NEW udp dpt:netbios-dgm
ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere state NEW tcp dpt:netbios-ssn
ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere state NEW tcp dpt:microsoft-ds
ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere state NEW tcp dpt:http
ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere state NEW tcp dpt:ssh
REJECT all -- anywhere anywhere reject-with icmp-host-prohibited

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination
REJECT all -- anywhere anywhere reject-with icmp-host-prohibited

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination
It does not look like before after I flashed it...

Try enabling netbios over TCP/IP on the windows box.
Do the nmbd logs and smbclient show samba as being the netbios name?

Hi,

I posted the results of nmbd log and smbclient command. Please let me know what you think. It looks like there has been no access from the XP?

Mygroup has appeared on the XP's network place, but "access denied.." error occurs.

Currently the share directory is /var/samba/share and the permissions of share and samba directory are 766. the owner of the directories is root.

Net view command on DCW still returns error "System error 53 as
>net view \\xxx.xxx.xxx

Please let me know what you think.



The nmbd logs:

[2008/11/13 01:51:41, 0] nmbd/nmbd_become_lmb.c:become_local_master_stage2(395)
*****

Samba name server SAMBA is now a local master browser for workgroup MYGROUP on subnet 192.168.77.200

*****
The result of smbclient -L samba was:

Yes, I did right after you told me, but it did not work.

I have found that some people had the same kind of problem. I've been working on this problem for almost one week, and had no luck
The great thing is that there have been some people like you have helped me for many days.

I just used another computer which also has xp and saw the same problem.

I am checking the router's firewall setting on the LAN.
Is there any firewall setting you can recommend for Samba?
