Dear list,

I have no in depth knowledge about samba but use the online tutorial to
configure the samba server.

this time I have installed samba (  Version 3.2.4-4.3-2042-SUSE-SL11.0 )
on suse 11.
I have now disallowed the guest users and created some samba users with 
"smbpasswd -a <username> " command.

but if I try to connect with the samba share from another linux box I
get the error as below

smbclient   //  /mnt/htdocs_192.168.1.3 -o

Domain=[LINUX-A0JN] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.2.4-4.3-2042-SUSE-SL11.0]
tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED


and here is the testparm

Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
Processing section "[htdocs]"
Global parameter deadtime found in service section!
Loaded services file OK.

        workgroup = ""

        unix password sync = Yes
        log level = 1
        syslog = 0
        max xmit = 4096
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
        logon path = \\%L\profiles\.msprofile
        logon drive = P:
        logon home = \\%L\%U\.9xprofile
        dns proxy = No
        wins support = Yes
        usershare allow guests = No

        comment = htdocs folder
        path = /srv/www/htdocs
        force user = wwwrun
        force group = www
        read only = No
        force create mode = 0777
        force directory mode = 0777


 I have no clue at all what is going wrong as there is no error message
at testparm.

Eagerly waiting for your kind response.
