Can you see Windows shared folders from linux?

to check that, try this:
smbclient //windows_IP_here/windows_share_here

that should give you a small shell. you can type ?<enter> to see a list of available commands.
anyway, check your windows configuration too.

hello dabicho,

i don't think it worked:
Code:
smbclient //bug/temp
added interface ip=192.168.1.105 bcast=192.168.1.255 nmask=255.255.255.0
Got a positive name query response from 192.168.1.101 ( 192.168.1.101 )
Password:
Anonymous login successful
Domain=[MYGROUP] OS=[Windows 5.0] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]
tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED
does it matter if i've shared windows folders? i usually have my window's box sharing turned off (though for this experiment i have it turned on).

thanks,
-disorderly

No, it doesnt really matter, but that shows what might be happening

I think its most likely that there is some missconfiguration that wont let samba get a share from windows or the other way. I am not samba expert though
Or, there might have been a bug in your version of samba. Try updating it.

Anyway, I agree wot what vegeta_nc said. It would be usefull to see samba logs.

Hello,
I am a Newbie with both Linux and Samba. I tried for several days to get Samba up and working and finally after much frustration I was able to get a share working.
One of the problems I found on my Mandrake box was my CHMOD permissions on my shared folder in the /home dir kept changing. I kept doing a CHMOD 777 and after an hour or so the permissions would reset to 700. I fixed this by making a directory called shares at the root and putting my shared folders in it. After 3 days now the permissions have not changed.

Another thing I noticed was that the path to the shared folder in the samba.conf file is case sensitive. for example:

path = /shares/share1

is totally different than:

path = /Shares/Share1

Make sure your path is correct or you will get a Network path not found error.

Hope you find your solution and don't give up because the solution is probably very simple as in my case :-)

Regards

I have also the same problem as you have. Unfortunatly, after an endless search at the net, I've got still stuck in this. After many guides, configures(of both inet.d.conf and smb.conf) my winxp pro still won't track any signs of the RH 9.0 Linuxbox. I've tried a lot of things, read a lot of threads etc. Can anyone here help us?

I have backups of my recent mp3s, DivX-movies, RPG-docs at this computer running windows, and it's neccessery to copy these files since I soonly am planning to format this partition. So Please Help!

omg it's been over 3 weeks now i'm seriously about to bash this POS machine - i gotta know for you folks that got it to work, did you install from rpm or from binary?

i'm thinking that maybe when it installed, it wasn't configured properly for this old machine. last time i tried to build from source i got tons of errors...

help..me... i'm....going... insane.....

once you get Samba installed, you can download an RPM named webmin. it should be able to help you out to configure your samba shares. It runs via a web browers in the formate http://localhost:10000 (if you running from the linux box) or if your not change the 'localhost' to the name of your linux box.
