logon to FC samba server from window xp


Hi,

I have samba server installed on Fedora Core and configured smb.conf, I am trying to connect to it from a windows XP machine by mapping a network drive using ip address ( \\192.168.1.5\home\joe)

the logon window comes up and I enter my username/password ( the same username and password as I used for my windows logon), but it always adds a domain name before my user name (domain\joe) and I can not logon, can anyone tell me what I missed here?

Thanks
Xli

Did you setup a samba password for "joe" on the FC machine using smbpasswd? Is your "/etc/samba/smb.conf" file setup for password authentication?
