i was just reading through your convo. yes samba can be a real bitch, i found that it works when it wants to! i ran FC2 for a little while and i found that the "menu > system settings > server settings > samba" (this might not be totally correct as im not infront of a gnome gui but its almost right!). also make sure that when you installed FC and you where asked about the firewall settings you made eth0 (or what ever ur ethernet card is called) is ticked as a trusted device (this was my common mistake it worked fine after that) if you didn then i belive "menu > system settings > security" (again im not sure if this is 100% correct) you can make it trusted.

i hope this helps, i had major problems with samba and i know now it can be!

If you can't see the computer in my network places there are larger issues here than your smb.conf

If you have a share defined, it should AT LEAST show up.

Smile you should do something like this

#touch /etcc/samba/smbpasswd
#smbpasswd -a [username]

followed the hint to type the user's password

i met that before, just use this can figure your issue out.


tell me know if it work

I did see the Linux box before on the network back when it would prompt me for a username and password... Then everyone recommended changing all these settigns you see and then I hadn't seen it again and am still unable to reach that computer...I have the firewall disabled from the installation, since I have dual hardware firewalls protecting my LAN. Any other ideas anyone
