I am attempting to set up Samba (V 2.X from the downloads section) on my Neutrino server.
I have everything configured correctly and my smbd and nmbd daemons start just fine at boot time. I can also view my Samba information from my windows box. But I am completely unable to map any drives from the Windows side of things.
Getting out the Using Samba book I went through the Configuration - Quick Reference chapter.
I am at the point where I run ‘smbclient -L localhost’ on my server to see the list of services offered by my server.
However this command fails outputting the following:
added interface xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx bcast=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx nmask=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE
The book (and various web sites) say this is because I have an improperly configured guest account (I don’t have one at all). So I tried instead ‘smbclient -L localhost -U username -N’ where username is a user on my server. This displays the same result other than the ‘Password:’ line which means that although I told Samba not to ask for a password and supplied a legit user it still is unable to list services.
Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? I assume I need to add some kind of guest user or change some kind of setting in the smb.conf file to fix this but the book nor the web elaborate on what needs to be done.
