Samba w/ WinXp- not working!

Right, samba seems simple enough to set it up, and I've seen it done plenty of times before- but doesn't seem to like me.

Fedora6 on one machine, which Samba running, with shares set up and unix users set up- but when I try to connect with any of several XP machines, it keeps compaining incorrect username/password. Not sure if I'm going to be able to get any help on this- as it's a pretty vague problem aye?

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers.

yeah thats a common problem have u set up your samba users along with their passwords??

goto administration -> server settings -> samba

at the samba configuration click samba users

click add user

for windows user: type the xp user account

samba password: select a password

confirm password:

done!!!

just restart ur samba service

should work now

Thanks for your help.

I compared my samba.conf file with yours and I had a lot more settings in global, so I commented them out, and I still had no luck. I then tried messing around with SELinux, and couldn't get anyway- but then found that if I disabled SELinux, I could now get in from my windows machine! (Also added security = SHARE to global)

So all was running fine, so I started fiddling with setting up calenders and mail etc for users, (and I'm pretty sure I didn't change anything to do with samba) but now, I'm getting xp machines trying to connect as guest again!!

Tempermental...

Any Ideas?

(Sorry it took a while to reply)
