View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 8.10 and samba

January 2nd, 2009, 08:45 PM

I have some problems setting up samba correctly in ubuntu 8.10. I have installed 2:3.2.3-1ubuntu3.3 package and it seems to run fine, but when I try to access shares from win xp box, it's a no go. My ubuntu box shows in network places under workgroup, but when I try to access it, I get a response that path does not exist or I might not have appropriate priviliges. Also trying to access the shares straight with "\\IP-address\username\" does not work. I have succesfully set-up samba to previous versions of ubuntu and debian, but for some reason I cannot get it to work with 8.10.

Never mind, firestarter had started firewall again. Sorry for spam.
