I am trying to access via a Windows NT Workstation on an NT Network.
I added the machine via server manager. I joined the domain via the
I modified smb.conf to set security = domain and
encryped passwords = yes
I told it that the PDC was the password server
The [homes] section says broseable = no
read only = no
testparm says everythiing is correct.
I added the user to samba and put added the password.
The share is not accessable via Network Neighborhood.
I run explorer and manually map to the linux box - it adds username to

If I click on Public, the message is - the network name could not be
I then tried the following at the linux box:
I typed in //smbclient //machinename/public
It showed that it added the correct interface, broadcast and netmask.
It asked for my password - I gave it. It then specified the domain os
Then it said" tree connect failed :ERRSRV - ERRinvnetname (invalid
network name in tree connect)."
What do I need to do to see the shares.
