I've created a samba share that is visible over the internet.  So http://mydomain.com/sharename        My problem is, I can't authenticate to it.  What am I missing?
Here is my config:

[global]
workgroup = House
netbios name = SAMBA
server string = Samba Server
obey pam restrictions = Yes
pam password change = Yes
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passwd chat = New*password %n\n Retype*new*password %n\n passwd:*all*authentication*tokens*updated*successfully
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
unix password sync = Yes
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 0
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
#add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd -d /dev/null -g 100 -s /bin/false -M %u
dns proxy = No
ldap ssl = no
hosts allow = all
[homes]
comment = Home Directories
valid users = %S
read only = No
create mask = 0664
directory mask = 0775
browseable = No

[shared]
path = /usr/home/lori
read only = No
create mask = 0664
directory mask = 0775
guest ok = Yes

Samba is not a http protocol server.

What server you use for http protocol??? Apache? Zeus? IIS?
