Thread: Samba won't work!

    Samba won't work!

    I've followed every help file out there to a "T", and it just won't work! I can access my roommates' shares just fine with smbclient, and they can see me when I'm running smbd and nmbd, but they can't connect to my machine! Anyone know what might be up? They're all using WinXP and I'm on my Gentoo box. I really don't know my ass from my elbow about networking, so if anyone can give me any ideas it would be appreciated. I'll gladly post any log and config files. In fact, just to start off, here's smb.conf.

    ; /etc/smb.conf
    ; Make sure and restart the server after making changes to this file, ex:
    ; /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb stop
    ; /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb start

    ; Uncomment this if you want a guest account
    guest account = nobody
    log file = /var/log/samba-log.%m
    lock directory = /var/lock/samba
    share modes = yes

    comment = Home Directories
    browseable = yes
    read only = yes
    create mode = 0750
    encrypt passwords = yes
    smb passwd file = /etc/smbpasswd

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

    comment = Share
    path = /home/smb
    browseable = yes
    public = yes
    writable = no
    printable = no

    Can anyone see any problems? I've set up users "conor" and "guest" with no password in either case. I'm right out of ideas, and my roommate and I are undertaking a big programming project for school this'd be fabulous to have networking up and running. Any ideas at all would be appreciated.

    Follow this tutorial to setup Samba.

    Sorry, I don't know much about Samba, but that guy in my LUG does.
