i have a weird problem, i am running a Fedora Linux OS on Vmware installed
from Windows XP
i have configured samba inside VMware linux (BRIDGED NETWORKING), but when i
tried to access the same from the windows it is telling "cannot be
accessible", i have tried almost all the ways...
My Windows IP is say 192.168.248.29 and i have taken a free IP from system
admin for my VMware linux running on windows say its IP is 192.168.248.195
and from windows i am trying to access like this
Go to Start menu -> run and type \\192.168.248.195, now it will show the
list of the samba folders but when i double click on the folder it prompts
for username and passwd and when i enter the samba username and passwd it
will popup a message "Cannot be accessed u might now have permissions to
access this" !!
but i have given all the permissions to that folder chmod 777 /home/user -R
and also while configuring samba i have given writable and browsable
permissions , i am using samba version 3.0.21b-2, and i tried stopping
iptables also but even that yielded same result
Please help me to solve this problem thanks..
