    Default Samba

    I am not really a newbie... but I have a newbie question :-).

    After I configured Samba server under the latest Backtrack release I cannot connect to it from Samba clients. Here and there I read that if SELinux is installed you should enable Samba server separately. For me it looks like that SELinux is not used in Backtrack.... Does somebody know this for sure?

    By the way when I try to restart Samba I get the message: aborted

    Some help would be appreciated.

    Kind regards,

    Macamba

    Default Samba WORKGROUP

    In the meantime I can access a share from a samba client on the samba server (backtrack). But to access it from the client I need to use: \\192.168.1.101\Data

    When I tell the samba client to look for the WORKGROUP (as named on samba server), it cannot find it...

    Somebody...anybody?

    Regards,

    Macamba

    Default Solution

    What a lonely post... but i found out how to.
    For the ones who also having problems, this is my /etc/samba/smb.conf file, which works for me.

    [global]
    restrict anonymous = no
    domain master = no
    preferred master = yes
    workgroup = WORKGROUP
    max protocol = NT
    ldap ssl = No
    server signing = Auto
    map to guest = Bad User
    guest ok = yes
    security = share
    os level = 65

    [Data]
    case sensitive = no
    msdfs proxy = no
    path = /mnt/sda1/
    guest only = yes

    Regards,

    Macamba

    Sorry, I wish I could have posted, but I don't really know what Samba is.

    It basically allows you to access Windows files via unix/linux.
    "\x74\x68\x65\x70\x72\x65\x7a\x39\x38";

    Ahh, thats why its so popular. I read it a lot on various forums but never took the time to investigate what it was. Odd, I thought there was a samba server, but that wouldn't make much sense then.

    Thanks for the 411!

    I'm sure it does more than just that, but thats all I've ever used it for.
