Hi,


Well, afaik the box has at least the user account "Administrator",
even you choose not to do login when the XP box boots.
The password may be empty in this case, but i don't know
since i don't use XP.


Well the error message points out, that your box does not have a share with that
name. Ok, this might be confusing since it may be the result of failed
authentification.

Just take a windows box which can log onto the share,
go into it's network neighbourhood, browse the XP box
and look, how the available shares are named.

Try to use this in //192.168.99.100/<ShareName>.
Try with user Administrator and empty password, too.

HTH

Ralf

P.S.: one "PLEASE" in the body of your post would have been enough:-)

(USENET NOTE: I deleted cross posts to non- comp.os.linux.setup groups
and emailed my reply also directly to the user)

Short answer: If you're running Windows XP Home rather than Pro,
you'll have some research/configuration work to do to get Samba
working.

Although it is not explicitly stated, I am going to guess that you are
running Windows XP Home version rather than Windows XP Pro version,
since you stated that "With Windows xp I don't need a password to
connect!!".

Networking support for Windows XP Home is has been simplified and
consequently limited. There is a lot of noise on the Internet about
Samba and Windows XP Home edition, ranging from "can't be done" to
"some assembly required".

The fact that the Samba documentation does not explicitly say that you
can't make Windows XP Home edition work, leads me to believe that it
is possible, but there will likely be some work involved. Here's what
Samba's doc says:

"MS Windows XP Home Edition does use default per user profiles, but
cannot participate in domain security, cannot log onto an NT/ADS-style
domain, and thus can obtain the profile only from itself. While there
are benefits in doing this, the beauty of those MS Windows clients
that can participate in domain logon processes allows the
administrator to create a global default profile and enforce it
through the use of Group Policy Objects (GPOs). "
HREF: http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/ProfileMgmt.html

If you are running Windows XP Pro, try this trick, just to see if you
can get something to work. It is probably not a good idea from a
security standpoint to leave things setup this way, but it will at
least help point to where the problem most likely is located (Windows
credentials being passed). Windows trys first to authenticate with the
credentials of the logged on user, so create a new local user on your
Windows XP Pro box named 'root' and give it the same password as the
root account on the Samba box. Now logoff and log back onto the
Windows XP Pro machine using your new root account userid and
password. Try to connect to the Samba share again. If you are asked
for a user id or password, use the same root credentials. If you can
now successfully use the Samba share, then you know that the problem
is with the Windows credentials that were previously being used. If
this does not work, then there may be some other, more unusual problem
that will require additional troubleshooting.

Good luck.

I dunno, I got it to work using Debian Sarge's default Samba setup. It was
pretty painless, I can see my shares on XP Home and XP Pro boxes.

Now, I can't write to any of my samba'd shares (either Linux-XP or
XP-Linux), but I haven't really taken the time to figure out what I'm doing
wrong.

>>Thank you for trying to help me!!!!
On that XP box, disable simple sharing. Tools->Folder options->view->Use simple
sharing - it's selected by default, unselect it and you should be able to access
C$, d$ etc etc. Let me know what happens.

People I know the answer now!!!!


It was stupid of me of course!!!
In de windowsXP(Professional)-PC I am sharing a whole disk!!
I only want to mount(on linux) the map named Pictures(from the
WIndowsXP-PC).
This disk has the label name "Over(G):\" in windowsXP
so the path to the map I want, is seen from the network as
Over\Pictures
So the real answer was always there:

mount -t smbfs //192.168.99.100/Over/Pictures /mnt/share/

It then asked me for a password and I gave an enter (no password).
And it mounted!!

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!!

I really appreciated all your effort
for trying to help me!!

This is what the world is all about!!


THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
