Edit the workgroup line in the smaba config file in the samba directory /etc/samba/samba.conf I think

Hi
My Global part of smb.conf looks like this:

Code: Select all

[global]
	workgroup = Home
	netbios name = xbox
 	security = SHARE
	socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
Workgroup: Home
Shares visible without
user/pw

don't set you security to share it should be set to user
If you keep an open mind, will your brain fall out?

Shish jahme! there is a util under KDE to do it, open up control panel. You can also open samba.conf in kwrite, you can ftp in under windows and edit it in note pad then ftp it back. You can also (for shits and giggles) type 'How do I edit samba.conf' into Google!

An easier way is to configure using webadmin. Just type http://xbox-ip:10000 and you will be greeted with the web admin login page. In there, u could have GUI to configure your samba and other server parameters.
