    Hi everyone,

    I have samba configd on my redhat 7.2 ok. it sees my shares. my workgroup=MYGROUP is seen by the windows machines but when I try to connect it says the computer cannot recieve the connection.

    hi

    i'm not sure that i understand what kind of problem you experience but it looks like you have to add the usernames of the windows users to the smbpasswd file.

    smbpasswd -a john <enter>

    when running windows, users have to be logged in as "john"
