Here you go. It looks like samba can't find specified user in database, but I
added such user with system-config-samba. Also note, that I from my PC can view
my own shares: guest account is enabled. Password is only required for one
share. But from other PC I get password input window even for server root -
guest account does not work.
Comment 5 Simo Sorce 2008-05-26 11:47:07 EDT
I am not sure why you try with usernames like ABORT or maxguest, they do not
exist in your samba passwor ddatabase.
Guest access work, if it doesn't from remote clients I'd look into the firewall.

The user thesource exist but the password you provide is wrong, have you given
the user a password with 'smbpasswd thesource' ?

Unless there is some other evidence I'd close this as not a bug.
Comment 6 The Source 2008-05-26 12:40:46 EDT
Ok, maxguest user MUST exist! It is windows username for linux user thesource -
I created it with system-config-samba. And password I typed creating this user
is also maxguest - I checked several times! If it is not samba bug than perhaps
system-config-samba one?
Comment 7 Simo Sorce 2008-05-26 13:04:36 EDT
what does 'pdbedit -L' return ?
Comment 8 The Source 2008-05-26 13:33:45 EDT
thesource:500:The Source

Oops. But windows user name for thesource on my home pc (set with
system-config-samba) as OvcaUser! 'The Source' is the full name of this user
configured after fedora installation, not for samba.
Comment 9 The Source 2008-05-26 13:36:57 EDT
Aha. Entering 'thesource' and correct password works. Looks like samba wants
linux username, not windows one. Wasn't so in Fedora 8.
