    When I try to access My Samba server from XP home, I get "You may not have access rights".
    I've managed this in other versions of Linux with SWAT, but that doesn't seem to be an option in Ubuntu )7.04).
    I know I have shared folders, so what's the right way to access samba shares from XP?

    Are you between a firewall? Can you telnet to the ports that samba uses from the windows host?

    are the 2 hosts on the internet or in a private lan?

    Do the files that you are trying to share have the permissions to do so ?
