Browsing samba shared Linux gives me IPC$.
Posted on 1998-09-04
I setup Samba today. I expected to see it when I browsed from my Win98 desktop, and I did. Now when I tried to browse the machine it asked me for the password for $IPC, or IPC$, don't remember the exact order of the $, but when I tried to give it every possible password I could think of for my PC , or the Linux server, none would work. So I can't browse the shares without getting past this. I remember editing the smb.conf and telling it to use the NTSERVER or passwords, and connect people to their home directory. I'm not sure what I should get, but I know that I want to setup file shares on my Linux box for Windows users. Please answer by example, and do not post as an answer until I decide who has helped the most.
