I am trying to setup a basic samba config by first starting up swat. I have
followed the guide http://us2.samba.org/samba/docs/using_samba/ch02.html but
I am running kubuntu, samba 3.0.14a, my smb.conf file is ...
workgroup = METRAN
encrypt passwords = yes
comment = For testing only, please
path = /etc/samba/tmp
read only = no
guest ok = yes
I have a /etc/samba/tmp directory,
I am user dave on the system so I ...
smbpasswd -a dave
I gave it a password of 'testing', it complained that a file did not exist
then created it for me ... all looked AOK
I pointed my browser to http://localhost:901, an authentication dialogue
popped up, I entered 'dave', 'testing' hopeing for the swat screen but all I
get is authentication failed, retry.
I have tried everything I can think of, including re-booting the machine,
Having mailed the kubuntu mailing list all I managed to get was a reply from
a fellow samba newbe having the same problem :)
Can anyone tell me where I am going wrong or is there a problem with the
kubuntu setup in which case I will file a bug report.
