I am relatively new to Linux and especially Samba. I am running FC 5 and I have updated CUPs and Samba to try and get my machine to act as a small file server.
I was previously getting this error:
You were not connected because a duplicate name exists on the network. Go to system in control Panel to change the computer name and try again.
So I looked around and found that disabling the iptables would get rid of that error and IT DID!!
Now I can see my file server from my windows machine but I get this error:
\\Localhost\rob is not accessible, you might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
The network path was not found
Here is a sample of my smb.conf file
workgroup = PIERMARKETING
server string = Server
security = SERVER
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 50
dns proxy = No
guest ok = Yes
path = /home/rob
read only = No
create mask = 0777
