Hi,
I'm taking a class on Linux.  This week we are learning about Samba.  Trying to set it up so that I can r/w files on the share.  Using Centos 5.7.

I can view the \\servername\sharename from my Win 7 device.  I cannot open the folder.

I set up a Linux user.
I setup a Samba user.
I matched passwords from my Win7 box to the 2 Linux passwords.

I can't figure this out.

I am using the Samba Server Configuration and the Samba Web Administration Tool.

Please advise.

And thank you to all who post...
