Ok, here's the deal. It's a little off topic as it centers more around
mount and XP issues then actual Samba, but they all seem to tie together,
sooo . . .
I have a RH 6.2 Box running a Samba (2.0.10) server with no problems. I
have a mixed network of Windows NT4, Win 98/95 Boxes, and Windows 2000 WS
and Server. Everything was talking just fine.
Not only could the M$ boxes see the Samba server, I could go the other way
using mount -t smbfs.
I use the format ' mount -t smbfs -o username=foo,password=bar
//server/share /mnt '
It has worked just fine provided 2 things;
1> The share existed (This includes the NT/200 Administrative Shares (C$
2> I used a valid username/password on the box I was connecting TO (i.e.
Local account on the NT box)
Everything has been fine with NT, and 2000.
I just upgraded a box to XP-Pro. Everything is fine going from XP to SAMBA,
no problems at all. But SAMBA to XP is no longer working. Example below
[root at hoc samba]# mount -t smbfs -o username=administrator,password=********
tree connect failed: ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess
SMB connection failed
[root at hoc samba]#
It seems to me to be an access problem, that XP dosen't like the
authentication token given, but Windows 2000 likes it fine.
