Win 7 cannot access share - using Webmin to administer.
I'm pretty new here and I want to be able to set up my Linux box as a shared drive (so that I can use it as a backup drive to my win7 machine).
I'm using webmin to administer Samba and I get to the point where it shows:
Share Name Path Security
homes All Home Directories Read/write to everyone
When I go to my win7 machine it I can browse to the machine (called jira2) and see the folder called homes, but when I click on the folder it says Windows cannot access \\JIRA2\homes
if I expand the details it says Error code 0x80070035
I am running Ubuntu 10.04.
Thanks for the help.
Re: Win 7 cannot access share - using Webmin to administer.
With Windows 7, by default it wants to authenticate using only the ntlmv2 handshake - usually tweaking the local security policy will allow it to connect to samba shares:
Setting the network security on the windows 7 machine to send both LM and NTLM responses may be of help. You can also set this up as a group policy rule if you're running Active Directory on your network and have multiple Windows 7 terminals...
