Hi there,

I have Samba service runing on a Slacware 7.0 server. I have it working with my Windows 95 / 98 worksations that first log into a windows NT server. But I am trying to get the workstations that do not log into a NT server to beable to access the same server, so they can save there files there. But they cannot get to it.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Here is the smb.conf

# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name, eg: LINUX2
workgroup = workgroup

# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field

server string = Samba Server
log file = /var/log/samba.%m
max log size = 50
security = user
# Use password server option only with security = server
; password server = <NT-Server-Name>
encrypt passwords = yes

socket options = TCP_NODELAY

; local master = no

; domain master = yes

; preferred master = yes

; domain controller = <NT-Domain-Controller-SMBName>

# Enable this if you want Samba to be a domain logon server for
# Windows95 workstations.
; domain logons = yes

comment = Home Directories
browseable = no
writable = yes

; [netlogon]
; comment = Network Logon Service
;path = /usr/local/samba/lib/netlogon
; guest ok = yes
; writable = no
; share modes = no

; path = /usr/local/samba/profiles
; browseable = no
; guest ok = yes

; comment = Temporary file space
;path = /tmp
; read only = no
; public = yes

; comment = Public Stuff
; path = /home/samba
; public = yes
; writable = yes
; printable = no
; write list = @staff

I beleive, If your client compute is in same workgroup then there should not be any problem to login to samba. And you have enable encrypted password that you may need to disable.

Try with this settings and let me know the result.

Bye! Have a nice day.....

You'll need a UserID and password on the Samba for the Wintendo machines. Whatever UserID you 'sign in' with on the Wintendo boxes will also need to exist as a Samba UserID.

With NT, the UserID is obvious, with Wintendo, it sometime's isn't.
