Users / Cannot access linuxmce samba shares from XP machines.
« on: July 12, 2008, 12:46:40 am »
I have been reading all I could find about this, and playing with smb.conf but no luck... so I decide to ask for help :)

I'm trying to access from the XP machines the /home from the linuxmce machine so I can upload content.

I edited smb.conf and added:
Code: [Select]
workgroup = HOME
comment = Linux Media Center
security = SHARE
guest ok = yes

Leave the rest as It was, and sometimes I can see the share from the XP machines but when i try to enter it says: you don't have access to this resource.

Now it never asks for password, so I'm not sure if this is the problem.

I have a home network, with a linksys router, and all the machines conected to the lan (Linuxmce included), I even tried to use the IP obtained via DHCP from the router with no sucess. (\\ for ex, frm the run box in xp).

any ideas?, I am missing something?, maybe a firewall blocking it?, but if there is a firewall why can I see the samba name in the workgroup?.

thanks in advance.
