Thanks Uncle mark. Compared to the file you posted and made changes and it will now access.

5 virtual rep points. :happy:


Give TLN an attaboy. It was his last post or two that twigged the synapse in the back of my brain that made me recall what I'd gone through when I first set up that workplace NAS around four years ago. It was M7/Etch with wide open shares, and that was the smb.conf I finally ended up with when I got it working. I copied that over to the M11-based setup it's running now (with newer hardware) and it worked like a charm. I figure it ought to work on -- and allow -- just about anything.

Thanks Tlee as well!

I was wrong assuming it was an issue that needed to be solved on the Win7 side.

For full disclosure, however, I had previously made some registry changes that were ineffective. I doubt they were required now based on UM's experience.

I am having the same issue with Kubuntu. Would it be possible to get a working samba.conf file to use as a base for my samba configuration?

Thanks,

Michel

Edit: I just noticed the file posted by Uncle Mark. I will have a loot at it

Used the file as is and nothing worked. Used the file's global and share settings on my own conf and the Mac could not see me anymore! and the win 7 machines still were unable to see me.

So I reverted back to my smb.conf. I can see the Mac OS X 10.7 with the addition of a Samba utility on the Mac side as 10.7 opted out of samba, I can see and connect to the Win7 machines but they cannot see me. Any thoughts?
