    Have created a samba server "sbserver01" with my workgroup "sbp" and shared folder, but when I try connecting to it in windows I get:
    \\Sbserver01 is not accessible.
    The network path was not found.

    I have used webmin to customise samba

    Any suggestions?

    DESPERATE.

    I have done everything I can think of, and still it's not working.

    This is an RH9 system with samba 2.2.7a-7.9.0.

    I have a simple, yet working, Mandrake system with samba 2.2.0 at home, so I have changed the smb.conf to match that, but still it is not working.

    I can see the server sbserver01 in the windows workgroup list along with the other windows machines connected and I can see their shares. I have NetBIOS enables.

    The config file looks like this:

    [global]
    path = /var/spool/samba
    smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
    printing = cups
    auto services = shared_cd
    dns proxy = no
    null passwords = yes
    encrypt passwords = yes
    socket options = TCP_DELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
    printcaps name = cups
    max log size = 50
    security = share
    server string = Samba Server
    workgroup = sbp
    log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
    netbios name = sbserver01
    load printer = no
    default = sbserver01

    [sbserver01]
    path = /sb_server_01
    writeable = yes
    comment = SB Server
    public = yes

    I am desparately looking for an answer, please can someone help.
    Trev.

    Ignore this thread, I am a complete and utter arse. Having turn firewalling off, I must have re-enabled it at some time.
