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:
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. (\\192.168.0.144 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.
