Samba login problem


Iam using Ubuntu 7.10. I would like to share a usb drive connected to my main desktop with other linux boxes on a wired network. I shared it in "system" and can see the drive on other machines, but when i try to connect, it asks for a username and password. Where do I set this? in smb.conf? Please detail how. I have been using linux for a number of years and can use nano etc. so I'm not a total newbie.

Thanks,

David

Hello David9789,


you can use:
Code:
smbpasswd


to add a new user "joe"
Code:
smbpasswd -a joe

i am not sure... but maybe you also need a local user...
if this not work... add first a new user joe... to the system and than
do this steps...


to set a new password for "joe"
Code:
smbpasswd joe


good luck.
