I am trying to get samba working on vista. My smb.conf file is at the
end of this mail. At the moment I am able to connect to my linux share
but I am prompted for a username and password first. This is as if the
server authentication is failing and it is defaulting to user
authentication. Does anybody know if the settings I am using are
correct, or could there be another reason that I don't go straight to my
linux share.

I get no problems connecting using this set up from my XP box.

Thanks for any help,
