To the group,
I have been trying to solve a problem in every way
possible, but to no avail. Anyone who has solved this,
please let me know.
1. Corporate network with corporate-assigned
usernames and controlled W95 environment.
2. Linux machine with local usernames.
3. Samba versions 2.0.6 and 2.0.7
4. RHLinux 6.2 on Dell Poweredge 2400.
I set up the samba server to have an smbusers file with
samba guest account as "samba." So the smbusers file looks like
root = administrator admin
manager = mht4
samba = pcguest *
When user "jsp7" connects, he get the public volumes;
but when "mht4" connects, the log file shows that mht4 has
mapped to "manager" after which "manager" has then mapped (by the "*")
to "samba." So "mht4" always just connects as "samba" the
designated guest account and doesn't have access to the "manager"
If I eliminate the last line of the smbusers file, then
jsp7 (who doesn't have an account on the samba server) always
gets prompted for a password. No good.
Shouldn't processing stop after the first translation, like
the host.allow file, instead of like an email alias file?
Is W95 just too broken?
