Unable to access fedora 10 shared folder from windows


Linux OS : Fedora 10 (No graphical mode)
Windows OS : XP and Windows Server NT

I am able to access from my windows to linux using following step
//fedora10 ip
username of admin and password

I am able to view the admin and shared printer of fedora 10.

When i try to enter in the admin folder i am not able to access it. It is giving error "Access is denied"


My smb.conf file is as above

--------------------------smb.conf-------------------------------------
# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too
# many!) most of which are not shown in this example
#
# For a step to step guide on installing, configuring and using samba,
# read the Samba-HOWTO-Collection. This may be obtained from:
# http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/Samb...Collection.pdf
#
# Many working examples of smb.conf files can be found in the
# Samba-Guide which is generated daily and can be downloaded from:
# http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/Samba-Guide.pdf
#
# Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash)
# is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a #
# for commentry and a ; for parts of the config file that you
# may wish to enable
#
# NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command "testparm"
# to check that you have not made any basic syntactic errors.
#
#---------------
# SELINUX NOTES:
#
# If you want to use the useradd/groupadd family of binaries please run:
# setsebool -P samba_domain_controller on
#
# If you want to share home directories via samba please run:
# setsebool -P samba_enable_home_dirs on
#
# If you create a new directory you want to share you should mark it as
# "samba-share_t" so that selinux will let you write into it.
# Make sure not to do that on system directories as they may already have
# been marked with othe SELinux labels.
#
# Use ls -ldZ /path to see which context a directory has
#
# Set labels only on directories you created!
# To set a label use the following: chcon -t samba_share_t /path
#
# If you need to share a system created directory you can use one of the
# following (read-only/read-write):
# setsebool -P samba_export_all_ro on
# or
# setsebool -P samba_export_all_rw on
#
# If you want to run scripts (preexec/root prexec/print command/...) please
# put them into the /var/lib/samba/scripts directory so that smbd will be
# allowed to run them.
# Make sure you COPY them and not MOVE them so that the right SELinux context
# is applied, to check all is ok use restorecon -R -v /var/lib/samba/scripts

Hi,



(1)Create directory to be shared.Also note that by default home directory of samba users will be shared.
#mkdir /home/adam/data

(2)Make the following changes in smb.conf file:


workgroup = YOURGROUP #(should be same as that of windows)
interfaces = lo eth0 192.168.12.2/24 192.168.13.2/24 #(add your LAN network)
hosts allow = 127. 192.168.12. 192.168.13. #(here also add your LAN network)


(3)At the end of the file add the following lines

[data]
comment = Data directory
path = /home/adam/data
public = yes
writable = yes
printable = no
write list = +staff
valid users = adam



(4)Add new user (example:adam)
#useradd -s /sbin/nologin

(5)Restart the samba server:
#/etc/init.d/smb restart

(6)Add samba user and provide the necessary password.(this is important or you wont be able to login)

#smbpasswd -a adam

Now you can access/map the linux directory data on windows system.

Regards,

Prayag

check your smb logs.

do you have this admin user in /etc/passwd???
if yes, reset the admin user passwd using smbpasswd <user> (assuming this user has been added using smbpasswd -a user)

if no, also add this user as a user in /etc/passwd
