    Access problem from Windows

    I have been able to share files among Vista, XP and Ubuntu boxes on a home wired network. Recently I cannot access Ubuntu files from the two Windows boxes. I get a message saying "the account is not authorized to log in from this station". I can access the shared Windows files from Ubuntu. (804) I do not have passwords activated for the Windows boxes. Also I noticed that when I first launch Evolution and click to download mail I get a dialog box about a key ring. I then type in my Ubuntu password and mail is then downloaded.
    What setting could I have messed up to have this problem?

    Thanks.

    Open terminal, and type:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf
    and in GLOBAL section add this line:
    Code:
    usershare owner only = False
    after that open terminal:
    [CODE] sudo /etc/init.d/samba restart [CODE]

    Thanks but that didn't work. Any other setting to check?
    It seems that this happened after I ran an update but I'm not sure.

    I got it working again.I re-entered the user names and passwords. I don't know how I broke it though.
