I'm using FreeBSD 4.9 Release with Samba-2.2.8
XP Pro machine connects to Samba-2.2.8, sees [homes] directory as
"username" correctly, and has logon success. Also sees [share]
directory, and has access. Net view \\samba displays username home
dir, and share.
Win98 machine connects to Samba-2.2.8, DOES NOT see [homes] directory
correctly. It only sees [share] directory, and has access. Net view
\\samba displays share only.
Here is the smb.conf:
wins support = yes
os level = 65
local master = yes
preferred master = yes
domain master = yes
netbios name = "unix name"
workgroup = "workgroup name"
encrypt passwords = Yes
comment = Home Directories
path = /home/%u
read only = no
browseable = no
comment = Data Share
path = /export
force group = users
guest ok = yes
smbclient //"unix name"/share -U username%password works for all
users, XP Pro and Win98
Win98 clients use same case-sensitivity for Workgroup and computer
name as FreeBSD usernames.
I'm assuming that encryption is not an issue with Samba; if XP Pro is
already setup for encryption, and it's working, then encryption is
functional on Samba.
Win98 EnablePlainTextPassword has DWord set to 00 00 00 00, which is
opposite on what networks.txt in Win98 dir recommends to disable
password encryption. Encryption is set to "ON".
Unix home dirs are owned by their respective usernames, with 755
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
