Hi all,
Please help, here is the problem:
1. From Win 98 client, I can map network drives to SAMBA shares.
However,when open any of the subdirect or files below the shares, an error
messagepop up: The folder "\\WEB_TESTING\<username>\<file/directory>" does
not exist I could not create nor change any file/directory below the shares
directory eventhoughthey appeared in the network drive. From DOS console I
encounter the sameproblem.
2. Using the same user logon id and password from Windows NT client I canmap
the network drive and have no problem accessing the shares.
3. What SAMBA server configuration and / or Win98 configuration that
willallow them to work together or what haven't done?I have checked UNIX
permission and priviledge OK.
Server configuration:
OS: Redhat 7.0, Samba: 2.0.7
Window 98 configuration:Protocol: TCP/IP (only)Win 98 SR2
