No permission to access resource

By BikerGeek ·
We have a Red Hat box running Samba and this Red Hat box shows in Network Neighborhood. Sometimes when a PC tries to access that Samba directory, a message stating there is 'No permission to access resource' pops up. After that, the rest of the PC'son the network disappear and only the Samba directory is viewable. If you reboot the PC, the rest of the PC's appear on the network and you can access the Samba directory with no problems. How can I keep that error from happening, and does anyone have any idea why the rest of the PC's (Win9 disappear from the Network Neighborhood?

No permission to access resource

It sounds like the Win98 box in question is having trouble with the master browser. Try going into "Network Properties", then "File and printer sharing for Microsoft Networks Properties", and make sure "Browse Master" is set to "Disabled" and LAN Announce is set to "No". Reboot the Win98 box and test it out. If your Samba server acts as the Master Browser, all your Win9x boxes should have these settings (it will decrease network traffic as well).

Good luck!

Thanks for your reply and ideas! Unfortunately, I made the changes you suggested, rebooted, and I get the same error.

Thanks again!
