Hi All
I am trying configuring samba on my linux machine. Below is the smb.conf
file. After starting the samba services (smbd and nmbd), i am not able
to access the samba exported folder from my network.
workgroup = TEST1
hosts allow = 10.2. 127.
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 500
security = USER 
encrypt passwords = yes
smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
   comment = UNIX Team's Data
   path = /unixdata
   valid users = abc
   public = no
   writable = yes
   create mask = 0760
Guide me thru the configuration as i think, i have missed out something,
which is not letting me access samba shared folder in my network.
