I have a Linux box with a very basic Samba 2.0.7 smb.conf configuration file :
workgroup = SBR-SOLEIL
netbios name = SOLEIL
comment = Test
path = /tmp/samba
writeable = Yes
guest ok = Yes
I can access the "test" share with smbclient from another Linux box on the same
added interface ip=188.8.131.52 bcast=184.108.40.206 nmask=255.255.255.0
Domain=[SBR-SOLEIL] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 2.0.7]
Sharename Type Comment
--------- ---- -------
test Disk Test de soleil.ema.fr
IPC$ IPC IPC Service (Samba 2.0.7)
SOLEIL Samba 2.0.7
but I can't even see the server from a WinNT 4+SP5 in the same subnet too.
SOLEIL is the only member of the Worgroup SBR-SOLEIL and therefore I see this
workgroup in the network neighbourhood of the NT box :
C:\>nbtstat -a soleil
Table de noms NetBIOS de la machine distante
Nom Type Etat
SOLEIL <00> UNIQUE Inscrit
SOLEIL <03> UNIQUE Inscrit
SOLEIL <20> UNIQUE Inscrit
..__MSBROWSE__.<01> GROUP Inscrit
SBR-SOLEIL <00> GROUP Inscrit
SBR-SOLEIL <1D> UNIQUE Inscrit
SBR-SOLEIL <1E> GROUP Inscrit
Adresse MAC = 00-00-00-00-00-00
In the WinNT neighbourhood I see the Samba's Workgroup but nothing inside it.
But when I try :
C:\>net view \\soleil
I have an error 5 : access denied.
I have the same problem when I try to mount the Samba share from the
same WinNT4 computer and with an appropriate username+password.
Strangely gnomba (GNOME SMB browser) can see the SOLEIL server.
NB: I have the same error with W2K as client.
