of all the windows machines and the one Linux Box I've set up with Samba.
Yet when I try "net view \\LINUXBOX" I get the no-soup-for-you message:
  "System error 5 has occurred."
  "Access is denied."

I don't remember setting up any password files for this installation of
Samba, and there was no previous installations. Either I missed it in the
documentation or no samba password file is required for simple operation?

The accounts on the linux and windows boxes I'm trying to establish
connections between have the same username and password.

I downloaded the 2.2.7a tar ball, compiled and installed with all the
default parameters on a "Core" linux distribution without any trouble or
wanring messages.

Next to nothing is running on the Linux machine. At first login, my bash PID
is in the mid 40's. AFAIK no firewall is in operation: though I'd be up for
confirming this.  Information about the basic setup of the Linux box is
here:, the
only notable error is that the Linux Box uses a static IP address, outside
the range of the DHCP server.

I can post the log files if any wishes, and here is the smb.conf file:
        netbios name = LINUXBOX
        workgroup = WORKGROUP
        log level = 2
        log file = /usr/local/samba/var/samba.log
        server string = "IBM Box in the server room"
        security = user

        path = /home/risk
        browseable = yes
        guest ok = yes
        read only = no

        path = /home/risk
        browseable = yes
        guest ok = yes
        read only = no
