I have a IIS 5 web server running on a Windows XP box. I want to use
a Samba share (on a Mac OSX machine) as the www root (document root),
but get access problems when I try doing so. I think my problem is
related to this previous question I found in the list archives, but I
couldn't find any answers. http://www.mail-archive.com/
samba at lists.samba.org/msg05340.html
I also found this at Microsoft's Knowledge Base, but I can't get it
In regards to the Microsoft article I have four questions.
1. Is this relevant for Windows XP?
2. What's the Regedit key in XP? Is it MACHINE/System/
EnablePlainTextPasswor as suggested here http://lists.samba.org/
3. Microsoft says "Map a drive letter to \\<servername>\iisroot using
'root' and "password". What do they mean with "root". Samba "root",
Mac OSX "root"...???
Thanks in advance!
