    Unable to log into a Shared Folder on Ubuntu from XP

    to start off :

    Delenn - Running 8.04
    Cerberus - Running XP Pro

    now.. I followed the instructions to setup Samba from here - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=202605 all good so far. Delenn talks fine to Cerberus and windows server Merlin.

    buuuuut when I try to logon to a shared folder on Delenn, I get asked for Username and Password.

    which I enter (they are identical on both machines) and bing... I'm asked again... and again... and again...

    so. I went back and checked everything over.. twice.

    I just can't seem to log in!

    Is the user valid on Ubuntu? (username and password in passwd file?
    Have you set up the user in Samba using smbpasswd -a?

    I had that happen when I was trying to login to a "home directory" as a different user - Samba showed a directory that didn't exist - I hadn't built the directory for my login name.
    But I digress... User has access rights to shared directory? (I suspect this is one of those things you already checked twice.)
