Dear All

I`m newbie to samba .currently i`m  working in samba 2.2.5 version 
on Redhatlinux 8.i faced a problem while connecting from one of 
the linux client to samba installed server which is also the same 
redhat linux 8.
i could able to get into samba server from windows NT machine and 
look at the shares but produces problem  while connecting from 
linux client to sambe server using the smbclient command at 
terminal........i dont know why ,hereby i`m enclosing the smb.conf 
file for ur reference ,plz provide me the solution as esrliets as 


# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name
    workgroup = choe
# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
    server string = Samba Server

# This option is important for security. It allows you to 
# connections to machines which are on your local network. The
# following example restricts access to two C class networks and
# the "loopback" interface. For more examples of the syntax see
# the smb.conf man page

     hosts allow = 172.29.39. 172.29.37.

# if you want to automatically load your printer list rather
# than setting them up individually then you'll need this

    load printers = yes

# It should not be necessary to spell out the print system type 
# yours is non-standard. Currently supported print systems 
# bsd, sysv, plp, lprng, aix, hpux, qnx
    printing = lprng

# Uncomment this if you want a guest account, you must add this to 
# otherwise the user "nobody" is used
;  guest account = pcguest

# this tells Samba to use a separate log file for each machine
# that connects
    log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log

# Put a capping on the size of the log files (in Kb).
    max log size = 50

# Security mode. Most people will want user level security. See
# security_level.txt for details.
    security = user

# Use password server option only with security = server
# The argument list may include:
#   password server = My_PDC_Name [My_BDC_Name] 
# or to auto-locate the domain controller/s
#   password server = *
;   password server = <NT-Server-Name>

# Password Level allows matching of _n_ characters of the password

# The following is needed to keep smbclient from spouting spurious 
# when Samba is built with support for SSL.

# The following are needed to allow password changing from Windows 
# update the Linux system password also.
# NOTE: Use these with 'encrypt passwords' and 'smb passwd file' 
# NOTE2: You do NOT need these to allow workstations to change 
#        the encrypted SMB passwords. They allow the Unix

# You can use PAM's password change control flag for Samba. If
# enabled, then PAM will be used for password changes when 
# by an SMB client instead of the program listed in passwd 
# It should be possible to enable this without changing your 
# chat parameter for most setups.

# of the machine that is connecting
;   include = /etc/samba/smb.conf.%m

# This parameter will control whether or not Samba should obey 
# account and session management directives. The default behavior 
# to use PAM for clear text authentication only and to ignore 
# account or session management. Note that Samba always ignores 
# for authentication in the case of encrypt passwords = yes

# Browser Control Options:
# set local master to no if you don't want Samba to become a

# elections. The default value should be reasonable
;   os level = 33

# Domain Master specifies Samba to be the Domain Master Browser. 
# allows Samba to collate browse lists between subnets. Don't use 
# if you already have a Windows NT domain controller doing this

on startup
# and gives it a slightly higher chance of winning the election
;   preferred master = yes
# Enable this if you want Samba to be a domain logon server for
# Windows95 workstations.
