Samba 2.2.3 in RedHat 7.3 - problem with Windows 98,XP,2000

I have installed Samba version 2.2.3 in RedHat 7.3. I can see this Linux Machine from Windows, but I can't access to shared disks on this computer. Here is my config file (only most important lines):

netbios name = storage
quest account = nobody
security = share
encrypt passwords = yes
smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
unix password sync = yes

.... classic settings (from help)

I have allready created password file smbpasswd and set up passwords via command smbpasswd.

Thanx for help.

Try security = user instead of share.

What Firewall configuration did you employ during setup? From a Windows command prompt type the following:

net view \\ip address of samba server

If you can see the shares then you need to go over your smb.conf file again. If you get "Error 51" then you need to open the netbios ports on the linux ports. Use firewall-config to open ports 137,138,139 on both udp and tcp and then restart ipchains and xinetd. Then try, it should work.

I hope this helps. Let me know!
