Am using Kubuntu 6.06 to connect to a Windows XP Professional machine,
both behind a natted router. The XP machine was installed from a new
service pack 2 cdrom.
I try to connect from kinda to winpro with a script run as root with the
smbmount //winpro/c /mnt/winpro -o guest,uid=lba,gid=users
This used to connect reliably but something happened :-(
I also have a public share on the Kubuntu machine.
Other Windows machine can access that share with something like
but the winpro XP pro cannot.
There doesn't seem to be much of interest in /var/log and
/var/log/samba. Does Windows XP have logs?
Security is share.
Any ideas what's going on?
I've searched the net and back messages from this group for several
hours but am mystified.
