    GUI


    Very interesting article, but, I'd suggest to add some GUI tools info like:
    SambaLink/Q http://www.spanware.com/linkq/sambalinkq.html
    Komba http://komba.sourceforge.net/

    I know that this is not geeky at all, but ...

    Samba


    Nice article. I have been using Samba for a few months on my home network, but in a very elementary fashion. You have shown me some better ways that I could be using it.

    Looking forward to Part 2!

    Minor typo


    This:<BR>
    <CODE>
    $ su -
    ..
    $ cd /tmp
    $ tar -xzvf /home/me/samba-2.2.5.tar-gz
    </CODE>
    should probably be:<BR>
    <CODE>
    $ su -
    ..
    # cd /tmp
    # tar -xzvf /home/me/samba-2.2.5.tar-gz
    </CODE>

    The homes directory method does not seem to apply to xp clients. Is there an alternate method for creating homes directories for xp clients?

    Re: password


    i want to clarify also 2 issues before i proced with this

    in thie smb.conf file
    does the workgroup = hostname?
    where did olympus come from?

    does the workgroup has to be the same as workgroup in the identification tab of the windows machine,,, if so then i need to figure out why it will not take empty password in windows

    Re: password


    I had some similar problems with Win 2000 that I resolved by using named samba users. Use the smbpasswd utility to add users and passwords:
    smbpasswd -a -U username
    smbpasswd username password

    If you set the password to match the one in Windows, them you should be able to connect, otherwise you'll need to type in the correct password and then you'll be able to see all the shares.

    You only have to add the user to Samba.

    root@pepino:/home/landie > /usr/local/samba/bin/smbpasswd -a -U maricel
    New SMB password:
    Retype new SMB password:
    User maricel does not exist in system password file (usually /etc/passwd). Cannot add account without a valid local system user.
    Failed to modify password entry for user maricel
