The dificult relationship of windoze with samba !

I've setup a server with Slackware 9-0 and Samba 2.2.8
Everything runs smooth, I can access the Linux machine from every windoze pc, copy, read, etc, files. But....

I've got a windoze PC with Serv-U FTP server, that uses a Mapped Drive to the Linux box. When I setup the ftp server he can read the directory, but when I try to access the ftp server (with ftp client), I always get a response that he can't access the directory, AND it appears a little red cross on the mapped drive.
The strangest thing, it's that there was no connection failure, because I can open files, beside the red cross on the Mapped Drive (after 10 secs aprox. of "normal" browsing (WinExplorer), the cross disapears)...

Can anybody PLEASE help me with this ???

Thank's to all in advance

Welcome to LQ.

This is a windows bug I have seen it myself before. I think it just forgets to change the icon or something.

You need to edit the Windows registry. I think you need to look for persistent connections or something like that. Sorry don't know where to edit or add the entry. I found it year ago on the internet but I didn't save it because I didn't need it at that time.

I think the mapped drive have to be loaded before your FTP service is loaded.

In LINUX, you may want to change mode on the directory. Also specify what kind of users (I think nobody or guest) can access the directory.

BTW, you could setup an FTP service on your LINUX system.
