[Samba] Newbie question

The reason you can see the shares is because security=share doesn't do any
authentication until you try to access a share.

I can see you're using encrypted passwords, so you need to make sure that
the username exists as a Linux user and has an entry in the smbpasswd file.

I personally had alot of problems getting security=share to work.  I think
the hardest thing to figure out is what username it's going to use.  If you
check out the smb.conf.5.htm you will see what steps samba uses to determine
what username to use.

Hi group,

I just installed Linux RedHat 7.2 with samba.
I use the following conf file:
        smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
        printing = lprng
        dns proxy = no
        security = share
        encrypt passwords = yes
        workgroup = K&S
        server string = Samba Server
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_SNDBUF=8192 SO_RCVBUF=8192
        log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
        netbios name = Linux
        load printers = yes
        username map = /etc/samba/user.map
        printcap name = /etc/printcap
        max log size = 0

        path = /home/data
        writable = yes
        comment = K&S Algemeen
        valid users = root,rob
        printable = no

On my Windows machine I can see linux and I can see the share 
(algemeen), but when I try to browse to it, Windows asks me for the 
What am I missing?
