It seems the client doesn't recognize the server by name. What if you try to access it by \\server_ip_address\share from windows client? If it fails again firewal or selinux are probably blocking smb. If you can access share it'll be the matter of setting up host names.

Thank you very much for kind help.Now after disabling firewal i am accessing samba through guest windows.But one problem is arising that when i double click on that folder, an error message is displayed "folder was not accessible,You may not have perssion" while I assigned full perssion 777 on that forder.

Thanks and Regars
Amit

Hi Amit,
it must be an issue with username now...
If your windows username is different from your samba username you won't be able to access the share. You'll need to use 'runas' (I think) in windows or map the drive with different username as option.
Your linux user must also be 'samba enabled', so please have a look at smbpasswd command, e.g.
Code:
smbpasswd -a test
adds user test to smbpasswd file.
You can test it with smbclient command
Code:
smbclient -L your_server -U your_username
If you can see the list of shared directiories, it's Ok. If the user is not in smbpasswd you'll receive "session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE"
I hope that helps...
