Windows workgroup (xp and win 7 mix) - connects to Samba on Fedora


Does it matter if:

1)
The Samba username and the share names are the same?  It makes it easy when Im setting up their personal folders.

2)
If everyone logs into windows using the same user name.  e.g. 5 PCs each have just one user name.
 
(I understand they have to log off/on if another user Samba users wants access to a share)

No, the Samba User and Share Name do not have to be the same.

I don't under stand question 2.  Samba does not enforce single user sign on.  You can have the same user connect to the same share from multiple clients.

If you are sharing users linux home directory with samba then username and their shares will be having the same name. You may have same share name and user name to manage. There will be no impact if you keep them same or different.

Samba is accessible from multiple clients simultaneously.
