Stuck on Samba
Can't access a Samba share

With help from several people in this forum, I have got my new Debian server for my home network set up and running smoothly. Adding Apache, PHP, SSH, FTP etc. was not difficult, but I'm completely stuck when it comes to configuring Samba.

In the global settings in /etc/samba/smb.conf, I've identified the workgroup name, got encrypt-passwords=true and security=user, and the machine shows up when I look in My Network Places on my Windows 2000 machine. But when I try to connect, I continually get a dialog box "Enter Network Password", which says "Incorrect Password or unknown username for \\Debian", even when I put a valid username and password.

Any ideas where I'm going wrong?

Did you add the usernames and passwords to the Samba passwords database?

You'll need to set up the users with smbpasswd before you can access the shares from a windows machine.

Is your unix password sync set to yes? If not, set it to yes and restart the daemon.

Ahh, yes... Doh! I knew it would be something obvious!

Thanks for the ultra-rapid response. I'll get the hang of this Linux thing eventually!
