SAMBA - Ubuntu 10.04 & Windows 7. Can't see share - tried everything.


Been fighting this all day...

I'm trying to connect to a share on Ubuntu 10:04. I have changed the registry on Windows to allow NTLMv1, and played with the .conf file. I think there may be a password problem.


	netbios name = mediaserver
	workgroup = IVYPLACENET
	security = user
	encrypt passwords = yes
	username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
	pam password change = yes
	passdb backend = tdbsam
	obey pam restrictions = yes
	unix password sync = yes


	comment = COMMENT
	path = /home/jez
	available = yes
	valid users = jez
	read only = no
	browsable = yes
	public = yes
	writable = yes
I have now turned off my firewall, and am getting this message in Windows;
The account is not authorized to log in from this station.
Not sure what this means...

I just want this to work... Not too concerned about levels of sophistication. Also, I am a total amateur, so please keep it very simple.

Many thanks,

Doh! Firewall....

Please ignore...

Although, if you use ZoneAlarm, this may be useful... You need to add your server as a trusted site.
