I'm trying to connect to a Samba share on a VirtualBox'ed Windows 7 that is connected to an openSUSE host in bridged mode. For reasons beyond my comprehension I cannot use the shared folders feature, so I'm using Samba instead.
I configured a share through openSUSE's Samba server configuration tool:
[iTunes] inherit acls = Yes path = /home/myusername/iTunes read only = No valid users = myusername
I also set a password for this user using
smbpasswd -a myusername. I can go to
smb://192.168.1.6 on the host machine and log in to the share successfully, but on Windows 7 I see this:
What am I doing wrong? I can connect to the shares list without any problems. It's just the login that doesn't work.
Update: I noticed that my Samba server is part of the WORKGROUP domain.
Domain=[WORKGROUP] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.5.7-1.17.1-2505-SUSE-SL11.4-x86_64] Sharename Type Comment --------- ---- ------- iTunes Disk IPC$ IPC IPC Service (Samba 3.5.7-1.17.1-2505-SUSE-SL11.4-x86_64) Domain=[WORKGROUP] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.5.7-1.17.1-2505-SUSE-SL11.4-x86_64] Server Comment --------- ------- Workgroup Master --------- -------
However, when I have to log in on Windows I see this...
Is this a problem? If so, how do I route around this?
