FW: [Samba] Question on configuration

I'm almost there.

I re-created a simple "smb.conf" with the basics

------------SMB.CONF File-----------------
        workgroup = UNIX

        hosts allow = 10.1.
        username map = /usr/local/samba/lib/users.map

        guest ok = no
        read only = no

   comment = Cognos Directories
   path = /cognos/bppr
   valid users = cognos s670587
   admin users = cognos s670587
   browseable = yes
   public = yes
   writable = yes
   printable = no
   create mask = 0765
------------SMB.CONF File-----------------

And now, I am being able to at least connect locally on the Unix server
using 'smbclient //bppr-r40/s670587' for example.  But still getting the
same message from the Windows machine. I found the 'docs/Registry' on the
samba.org website, and found your Registry file, but executed it, and still
the same behaviour.

Any ideas?

If you installed source it would also be there. It depends on your 
distribution where the doc files get placed. Here is the registry
file for Win2K. Copy this file to your Win2K machine and double
click on it to apply the fix or if you are comfortable with regedit
us can use that and do it by hand.
