Ubuntu Samba problem

2012-02-10  Source: Original Site  Category:Ubuntu  Views:0 


i am trying since a few days to create a home network but i thing i made it only worst. I want to connect a Windows XP and Ubuntu 10.04 system (between them a router, XP on wireless, Ubuntu on cable, all in the same workgroup). A the beginning i could see my linux and windows shares on my laptop (also Ubuntu 10.04) but not on windows. Now after messing a lot with samba (and firewall) i cant see my linux shares and i get "Unable to mount location. Failed to retrieve share list from server" when i double click on "Windows Network".

My samba.conf:

; Uncomment this if you want a guest account
; guest account = nobody
log file = /var/log/samba-log.%m
lock directory = /var/lock/samba
; share modes = yes
usershare owner only = false
workgroup = nerv
; server string = samba 3.4.7
security = share
; encrypt passwords = yes
; guest ok = no

comment = PublicShare
path = /home/narthir/Public
writeable = yes
; browseable = yes
valid users = narthir

Thanks for any help.

P.S. I think it would be a good idea if i could reset network/firewall/samba configuration for starters :P
