Post New Suse 10 Server setup, Cannot connect to shares without pswd

I have just setup a test server with Suse 10. When I browse to the server to connect to a share it prompts me for a login but I cannot login with any credentials on the Suse server. If I open the share to guest it is fine (Don't want that.). What is the fix for this? Thanks for your help.

what kind of shares?

is it samba shares (i.e. windows file sharing)? Do you want to allow only certain users to connect?

If so, I think you should list the users in /etc/samba/smbusers. Maybe you also need to run a command to set a samba password, I don't really remember at the moment

Yes I am using Samba. Thanks for that information. I will look up Samba users and how to add them.

After doing this the connection worked fine. You use smbpasswd -a to add, what are the other commands that can be used?
