Hi everyone. I have searched for days on this problem and no one seems to have the fix. Everyone else seems to go off on tangents.
I have 3 computers. One runs XP pro, one runs Windows 7 Ultimate x64, and one runs openSUSE 11.2.
The two windows machines can share files between each other with no problems.
On suse I setup samba correctly. When I go to Computer -> Network on suse, I then go into Samba Shares. Then I see my workgroup name. I click to go in and I can see all 3 of my PC’s listed here.
When I click on my XP pro machine, I am prompted for a user name and password. I put it in and I gain access perfectly.
When I click on my Windows 7 machine, I am prompted for a user name and password. I enter it in and it prompts me again for the user name and password. It will not let me in.
I have changed all of the settings in 7, I have disabled the firewall, I have changed the security policies, I have changed the encryption strength.
Simply Samba is not playing well with Windows 7. I cannot believe that I am the only one with this problem.
How can this be fixed?
