I have no idea what is going on. I had samba working with different shares and users. Then, after a reboot (for ftp reasons, not touching samba at all) when I tried to log on from xp the log on window just flashed. I tried it four times with different user names. I tried rebooting all the clients. Then I rebooted the server, restarted samba and it worked. After about an hour it started doing the same thing. FTP and SSH are still working fine. I also tried rebooting the samba service many times too.
Here is the smb.conf even though there is nothing on it.
Also, "browseable" = no never did work. I had to change the directory permissions via chmod. I'm running the latest ubuntu server release.Code:[global] workgroup = STONE netbios name = Server encrypt passwords = yes security = user wins support = yes [homes] read only = no browseable = no
