    Can I set up Samba so that it uses the Windows client name to access the share instead of using a name & password?

    you sure you wanna do that.. makes for some pretty rough insecurity if you do that..

    a person can just change they pc's hostname and gain access to the shares..

    why not use it with windows usernames / passwords.. you should not even get a password prompt when connecting to shares that way.

    Sounds good, can you point me to a site that will help me set this up.

    I have set up my shares using webmin, so advice using webmin would be perfect.


    Thanks
    Trev.
