    Did you find any solution anywhere for this problem. I ask because I have the same problem.

    From my Kubuntu machine I can access the shares on the Windows machines, but not vice versa.

    sudo /etc/init.d/samba start

    There shouldn't be any errors - if you are presented with an error message make sure everything is correct (search for typos and/or invalid paths).

    it reads

    command not found



    Try this:

    sudo /etc/init.d/smb start


    Off-note, Stormbringer, you are a peacebringer to me... i have read over 20 how-to's about samba, this is by far the best one; i was able to access samba shares from both Vista and Xp clients.

    Thanks a lot!!

    Thanks storm bringer worked a treat but one thing

    Iv set up users on the server Cam,Robyn,Laura,Daniel etc i would like it so that i could make a folder on the share called Cam for example and then everyone would be able to see that folder but they would not be able to access it, only cam could access it. How would go about doing this?

    have been having this same issue with 7.10. this guide worked great with 7.04 but with an install of 7.10 something gets screwed up. but after about 3 reinstalls i think i may have a fix for some people. it worked for me.

    when you use the "server install" dont let the cd install samba when asked install it after the os install is done. have no clue what if anything this helps with but it worked for me.

    Using Ubuntu 7.10

    Hello,

    So I'm really new to linux and especially linux servers and I'm also lost. I've been trying to set up a samba server( Ubuntu 7.10) on a desktop that I have here on my home network, which is composed of one XP desktop, a Ubuntu Virtual machine, and my linksys router.)

    So far I've just flunked and I've been trying to search for a detailed guide that can help me. This guide has been pretty excellent but I've ran into a few problems at the very beginning.

    I got to the point where I installed samba and then I stopped it. After that the nest couples of steps goes as follows:

    Code:
    root@hoab:~# mv /etc/samba/smb.conf /etc/samba/smb.conf.template
    root@hoab:~# touch /etc/samba/smb.conf
    root@hoab:~# gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf
    cannot open display:
    Run 'gedit --help' to see a full list of available command line options.
    At that point I had no idea what to do. So I tried looking at some other help files and such and haven't got any where. I also tried installing the gedit (The first time it said it wasn't installed), smbclient, samba-common, and smbfs.

    Would someone mind helping me? I'd really appreciate it.
