I have a simple home network with a Linux gateway supporting a few PCs
(RH 6.2, 2.2.14 kernel). I setup Samba on the Linux box and used it
for easy extra file space for the PCs. My kids and I logged on with
our Linux user names and passwords and then had acess to our home
directories on the Linux box.
The hard drive on the Linux box started crapping out periodically so I
built a new one mirroring everything I did on the old one - firewall,
web server, snort, samba, etc. Everything works just like the old one
except Samba. Now when I try to logon to the network I get an error
saying that my password is wrong or I have been refused by the server.
I have gone over my smb.conf file several times and I believe
everything is the same as before. Is there some simple thing every
dumb dork forgets?
