I could do with some more info. Yeh your smb.conf would be useful, and a
log on level 3 would also be good.

What errors do you get when you are rejected?

Try connecting to the server locally using smbclient

Dear Sir

I am mailing you in my frustration that nobody can help me to solve a
problem. Could you try and help me? Well in short this is my problem.

I recently installed a new server at a local college with fedora. It is
working well as a internet sharing masquerading server but the file
server using samba is a mess. I have tried everything and I do not get
it going. Firstly if I use security share then I can view the files that
I set to every one, if I put restriction onto that it does not work.
Setting security to user fails, I cannot access the server, does not
recognise my password and username. I come to a conclusion that it does
not recognise my users on the system. But they do appear in the
smbpasswd and passwd files. To avoid any starting problems I created a
dummy user with its own group, then added a user to that group. Still
does not work. I desperately want to get the homes to work.

Please I would be grateful for a reply. 

If you would like to have a copy of my smb.cinfig then I am willing to
mail it to you.

Chris Botha.
