I just recently setup a machine here with fairly barebones ubuntu and a large
HDD. Plan to use it as general network storage on my predominately windows
path = /data/
guest ok = yes
case sensitive = no
msdfs proxy = no
invalid users =
guest only = yes
Is the block from my /etc/samba/smb.conf file, this was created via the KDE
system settings interface. Now I can see the computer on my windows machines.
However when I try to access it prompts for a login. Trying various user name
and password variations of nothing at all, my own login to the unix box, even
'nobody' as the user name all fail.
Googling so far isn't turning up anything useful, although I will continue,
but maybe someone here knows exactly what is going on and how to resolve it.
