Samba <-> PCs logging on
Posted on 1998-10-21
I could have put this with my other question about Samba but I figured it's a seperate issue.
I have Samba running on RedHat 5.1 on a LAN with several PCs and Macs. I have set smb.conf's "workgroup" setting to the same as all the Win95/98 PC's workgroups, and have checked the "Log onto Windows NT domain" in the Network properties on all the PCs and entered the correct workgroup name.
I have made sure smb.conf has it's "security" setting set to "user" so that people logging on at the PCs use their Linux passwords (in /etc/passwd, yes?) to log in.
Well, it kind of works, except all the PC users are getting error boxes saying something like "No server was found to validate your password. You may not be able to access some network resources"...
But I know for a fact that the PCs *have* found the Linux box because it appears in Network Neighborhood, and people can browse their home directories!!!
