Okay - I've tried adding machine account as suggested but still no joy -
same symptoms as before. Also tried changing security to 'share' - this
time I can see the share in windows explorer but it asks for a password
under the username of 'Guest' (greyed out) when i try to access it - no
passwords work (including null).
workgroup = WORKGROUP
netbios name = SAMBA
server string = Samba server in user level
security = user
encrypt passwords = yes
valid user = ian
