samba mapping from W2K to redhat

Hi, I setup samba server on redhat 2.4.20 system, and try to use network mapping from W2K, and keep getting the error message below.
"The network path \\ip-address\tammy could not be found" on W2K PC. I can see network connection on samba server(redhat).

Appreciate any help and input.

Thanks..

The folders to be shared in the smb.conf file must be specified.

Unless you are using single sign on via ldap you need to run the following command for each user to set up their smbpasswd file

sbmpaswd -a

This will show up in roots .bash_history log, so make sure permissions on that file are tight or you have no security.

Hi SEP,

can't you just use the command without password? Wouldn't it prompt like passwd invisably for a password? Its at least, what I can remember.

Yep, the folder is in smb.conf file.

[tammy]
comment = Html Web Pages
path = /usr/tammy
read only = no
public = yes
writable = yes
printable = yes
write list = @users

The permission for /usr/tammy is 777.
I also setup log file, but I do not see any
log file created in /var/log/samba directory.


# this tells Samba to use a separate log file for each machine
# that connects
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log

Re: samba mapping from W2K to redhat

I enable two parameters, and change the definition for tammy section.

pam password change = yes
obey pam restrictions = yes

[tammy]

path = /usr/tammy
public = yes
writable = yes
printable = no
write list = @users
