Re: Access log

Typically, default samba configurations place a specific log file for each connecting computer in /var/log/samba/SYSTEM_NAME.log (or something similar to that). The variable is '%m', I believe, so you might want to search for that in the /etc/samba/smb.conf file.

Also, /var/log/samba/nmbd.log and /var/log/samba/smbd.log should contain useful information for you.

Re: Access log

Check the /var/log/samba, you will get a log file for each host connected ever. You can also use the smbstatus command.
