Re: Samba: password for mapping network drives
Can you help me with that share name thing? Does that go in the
global section? I've checked the man page for smb.conf, and still
couldn't find anything about this parameter. I've set the
workgroup for the appropriate windows workgroup name. Is this what
you were talking about? I've got the password correct, but now the
message comes up "The share name was not found. Make sure you
typed it correctly."
Adding a share is fairly simple... Say for instance you wanted to
share out your CDROM which is mounted on your system as '/cdrom', you
could add this to the bottom of your smb.conf:
comment = CD-ROM drive
path = /cdrom
guest ok = no
read only = yes
You can then try mounting the share \\yourhost\cdrom on the Win95 PC.
There are more options that you can give to a share that are
documented in the man pages.
