Hi All,

I have the following setup.

Samba Server: Scientific Linux 6.2 with the following samba config. I am able to ping the samba server from both a Mac and Windows XP machines. I can even connect to the samba share.
However when I try to access files in the directory I get the error Access Denied. What am I doing wrong? Any help is appreciated greatly.

From Mac I can Connect as Samba User, See the Samba Shares. Same with Windows XP I can use c:\net use x: \\MGLINX\Murthy or any other user I configured on the server. However when I cd to X:\ and do dir I get the error Access Denined.
