    Default How to establish user names and passwords in Samba

    Attempting to set up a Samba network from my SuSE 11.2 desktop to a windows laptop. Using YaST, a Samba server has been created, and allow users to share has been clicked. Identity is not a domain controller. no trusted domains have been set, and no LDAP settings have been set.

    Right now, each computer can see the other over the network. When clicking on the network from windows, a window pops up requesting a user and password.

    Konqueror sees both computers under smb://. It also has a window that pops up requesting user name and password. Where do I set up these user names and pass words?
    The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.

    The username must be a Linux account first, and then the password is set using smbpasswd.
