Hello,

I'm trying to get Samba working but i'm new to Linux and cant figure it out.

I've following the guide at this address: http://crazytoon.com/2007/05/22/samba-how-do-you-install-and-set-up-samba-in-linux-redhat-enterpriserhel-centos-fedora/

However when I tried accessing it from the Windows machine, I get repeatedly asked for the password as if it is incorrect.

I tried to do some troubleshooting by using the following:-
 smbclient //localhost/share -U smbuser

but when I type in the password, I get:-
Domain=[WRKGRP] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.0.33-3.29.el5_5]
Server not using user level security and no password supplied.
tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_USER

I've checked and the shared folder exists and the user exists.
Thats as far as I've got.

Any ideas?
Thanks
Dan
