I seem to have found myself in a bit of a dead end.
I have a RedHat Linux 6.2 box running Samba 2.0.6-9 providing file and
printer sharing to a Windows 2000 box. Up until yesterday, all was going
fine. The shares were accessible and the machine could be browsed in
While playing around with printer settings, I inadvertently changed
something, with the result that while shares can be accessed, printers
cannot and whenever I try to view the Linux box in Win2K, I get an error
telling me that the server is not configured for transactions.
Here is my current smb.conf file (I removed printers completely)
security = SHARE
encrypt passwords = Yes
smb passwd file = /etc/smbpasswd
password level = 2
username level = 2
read only = no
create mask = 0750
Has anyone got any pointers as to what I'm doing wrong?
