SUSE 9.3 Windows Client

Postby darrenhunter » Thu May 19, 2005 9:34 pm

I have a little problem with samba on SUEE 9.3 Pro

1: Every time I access my windows XP form SAMBA it ask for my xp user name and password. Wonded if there was a way to cash it or store it so I dont have to keep entering it.

2:I can't get access to any of the shares on the linux pc. It promps me for my Linux username and password. I set up another user called remote and password remote but sutill i could not connect..

Is there any way i can set my XP user name and Linux user name as the same so i can jst click and drag.....

I tryed setting them to both the same but it still did not worlk

am I just doing some thing stupped...

You need to set a Samba password separately from your Linux one. If you use SWAT to control Samba via a web browser you can add Samba users & passwords that way.

Of course, there's nothing to stop you having the same password for both...
Hope this helps,
