Thread: configure samba (connect to win xp)

  1. #1

    configure samba (connect to win xp)

    ???

    I am trying to connect win xp to Red Hat server.

    Up till now my win xp sees the samba server but access is denied. I think it is somehow connected to the password encripted or not.

    where can I get a step by step configuration instruction on how to do it ?

    It takes me hours to do and I still can do it?

    Re: configure samba (connect to win xp)

    It should, as far as setting up Linux goes.

    Another trick is to use SWAT (A GUI interface to configure SAMBA). Open a browser and type in this address: http://localhost:901

    If you get an error message, check out this article, it tells you how to enable SWAT:

    As long as you have SAMBA 2.2.2 or later, it should work with Win2K as well as WinXP.

    Re: configure samba (connect to win xp)

    I am still trying to configure swat to work only the port 901 give me an answer that there is no access

    The line in the services file is set
    and I tried to add the line for the inedt.conf (I don't remember the exact name of the file but I fillowed the article for adding a line to start swat nodelay etc...)
    and still I get the message the server refuse the connection

    I feel that mabye swat is not insalled
    or just not working

    what to do? How to check if swat is installed?

    Re: configure samba (connect to win xp)

    I tried all the suggestions so far but they don't work

    I have a linux version 7.0 with samba installed from a cd 2.0.(I think 2.0.7)

    I tried to use the article that gives a big configuration file for samba but when I try to logon to the samba server from the xp
    it logs as a guest/netbiosname
    and no password is acceptable I tried nobody I tried the server root password I tried the user I added for the linux server or the user for the xp client... nothing

    when I try to run smbclient on the linux mechine it gives an error such as SSL error and there is a line about socket options and there is an error about it that socket option is invalid.

    what else??
    I tried to run swat and added the lined to the services file and the inted.conf file (I hope I abbriviated right) but ther is a message that the server refuse the connection.

    Does samba comed automatically with swat??
    Do I need to install swat seperately??

    what can you recomend ????

    May be you miss my reply. Samba 2.0 do not work with WinXP or Win2K for that matter.

    Does samba comed automatically with swat??
    Do I need to install swat seperately??
    No. Swat is a separate package. Swat is just a front end for to configure Samba. Install Swat from the CD.

    Note: Still no MOD move this thread to Server forum?? This thread is not about security at all.. :-X
