This is a reposting of a previous message. I'm starting to get
desperate. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I'm having trouble connecting to my debian machine from my windows
machine using samba. I've successfully done this before, but now I've
got several users connecting to the samba server for IP printing to
jet-direct boxes. Right now, I've got my SMB.CONF file set so that it
uses the workgroup "linux" and "security = user." All my users should
be able to connect with the same login name (student), and no password.
Is it possible for multiple users to connect to the samba server all
using the same login name? Or do I need to have a separate account for
everyone who connects (the latter would NOT be a good scenario, if I can
avoid it). Is there something else I need to set in the smb.conf file
to allow multiple users with the same login name? Perhaps the "security
Believe me, I've got everything else setup correctly. Null passwords,
smbpassword file is set for no passwords as well.
Thanks in advance.
