On one server, i have CentOS Linux 5.9 operating system. I have shared the folder /var/spool/asterisk/fax . From Windows 7 i try to access \\LinuxServerIPAddress\FAX and receive a log in prompt.
Most likely i need to add a user with a password to the Samba shared folder. What is the procedure for this? What commands do i use?
Also the module "Samba Windows File Sharing" is installed.

smbpasswd –a <id> will add a user to samba but you may need to adjust smb.conf as well

create a user with #useradd username

to specify the password for samba use #smbpasswd -a username

then configure the printer sharing with user level access
