cant connect to samba
ok, for N'th I reinstalled freebsd and updated it to latest stable and now I'm trying to isntall samba back. Last time I built it from ports but this time I decided to do it with packages, so I downloaded latest package from ftp.freebsd.org and then just did pkg_add.
When I first time tried to start smbd and nmbd I got error saying needed valid.data upcase.dat lowcase.dat files. I found those files, downloaded and now it doesn't ask for them. But the thing is that I cannot connect to my box from my winxp box.
My simple smb.conf (if it makes any difference):
I ran smbd && nmbd manually as root, but when I try to connect from xp it just keeps on prompting me for password. When I do smbclinet -N -L localhost I get
Where 'brenda' is another home win2k box with shared hdd. Thing is that I cannot access my bsd box - I see it in my workgroup computers though, but it keeps on prompting for username/pass even though I set guest ok=yes Another thing that confuses me, how come I get both error connecting to 127.0.0.1:445 (Connection refused) and Anonymous login successful at the same time?
SWAT doesn't work either, but I guess thats another thread.
log.nmbd has no errors in it, it just got "Netbios nameserver version 3.0-alpha15 started."

And you know I mean that.
Have you run "smbpasswd" to create a password file? I believe you need this for encrypt passwords=yes
