I've set up a Debian machine with Samba 3.5.6, acting as a stand-alone
I have a Windows Vista client participating in a company domain, but the
client should have access to the Samba (which is not on the domain).
I can connect from the Windows client to the Samba server using the
I can immediately browse around, open and creating files and directories.
Then after a minute or so, Windows cannot use or reconnect to the share
I have to delete the connection "net use z: /delete" and then make a new
workgroup = XYZ
netbios name = XYZ-NAS
server string = %h server (Samba %v)
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log size = 1000
syslog = 0
encrypt passwords = yes
comment = Our data
path = /data/
browseable = yes
writable = yes
valid users = abc
public = no
Any suggestion as to what I am doing wrong?
What I really want to achieve; is to have my own little NAS attached
physically to the company network, but not in any way participating in,
or disturbing that network - I do not want to anger the IT department.
Only one user should get access to the NAS.
I hope someone can help me out...
