Samba question, can't open the folders

Samba question, can't open the folders

Post by MacPia » Sat, 13 Nov 1999 04:00:00

My next conquest is getting samba functioning 100%. I can log into the server
with network neighborhood and log in with my name and password, but when I try
to open the folders they tell me they don't exist. Any ideas?



1. SAMBA Question, Linux box can't see Windows Shared folders

I have an XP VM (VMware Server 2 on CentOS5.2) on a network of Fedora and
CentOS5 machines. The Linux boxes export SAMBA shares which the XP VM
sees just fine. The XP VM also sees it's shared folders. The Linux boxes
(both CentOS5.2 and Fedora 9) can see the SAMBA exports from each other
and they can see the XP machine but they can't see anything of the shared
folders on the XP machine (I'm looking at the network for Nautilus).

What do I need to do on either the Linux side or the Windows side so that
Linux can see the XP Shares?

Here is my smb.conf file,

#======================= Global Settings

        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        cups options = raw
        netbios name = Nimitz
        server string = Nimitz Samba
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY
        workgroup = workgroup
        os level = 20
        username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
        encrypt passwords = yes
        winbind trusted domains only = yes
        security = user
        passdb backend = tdbsam
        max log size = 50
