I am new to Samba and trying to set up a little network with just a pc (Windows ME) and linux server (Mandrake 8.1). I'm sorry if these questions seem simple, but we need to have this network set up asap and I don't have lots of time to do research (networking is not my responsiblility but this was thrown on me).
We have the pc and linux box connected to a mini-hub and I can ping the server from the pc, but when I try to map a drive I get an error saying something like the machine could not be found. I have added a user to the linux box and to samba , and have added this user to the frontline group. Unfortunately this network is set up at a different office so I can only test the setup at certain times.
I did have Samba working correctly at our office with this same linux box, however we had a NT Server and the PDC.
Here is my simple smb.conf:
workgroup = STOGDEN
server string = Samba %v
encrypt passwords = Yes
unix password sync = Yes
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log isze = 50
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF8192 SO_SNDBUF
dns proxy = No
invalid users = root
comment = Test
path = /opt/frontline
valid users = @frontline
read only = No
Does anyone see anything that I need to add to get this to work? Do I need to make this linux box the domain master? Again sorry for the questions without a lot of research.
Thanks for any responses,
