Problem: Access to Suse/Samba OK from win98 NOT FROM WIN-NT/2000

Post by magt » Sun, 25 Feb 2001 21:01:08

I have a linux (Suse 6.4) box running samba. i include my smb.conf below.
I have a problem accessing shares from windows NT and 2000.
I do see my server (name Apache) in the Neighboork Network but I can't
access anything.
 Everything works fine when doing an access from Windows 98: Any hint on how
 to solve this?
i also include the error log from samba when my NT machine wants to connect
to it.

1. How can I access drive of Win NT and Win 2000 machines from Solaris 8?

I have Solaris 8, Win NT and Win 2000 machines on a LAN (peer to peer

My solaris machine has only 2.1G drive and it is almost full.

I was wondering if I could mount the drives of Win NT & Win 2000 machines on
Solaris 8 machine and be able to use those drives as though they belong to
Solaris machines.

Basically I need more storage space on my Solaris machine and I was
if I could use Windows PC's drive?

Any pointers will be greatly appreciated.
