I've setup a simple linux machine with samba 3 on it.
I configured samba share to allow guest access. So no usernames or passwords required.
From my ubuntu laptop I can access share without problems, right under Network I see my server and I also see windows workgroup share right next to it.
But when I load in win7, and try to get to my box. It just doesn't do anything.
I read about Local Security Policy fix, that requires Network security: LAN Manager authentication level modification and since I have win7 home I had to tweak it from registry direct.
Despite fix, share doesn't show up.
p.s. I disabled firewall during test.
p.p.s. I've selected public network in win7 when I first connected to my home wifi. Could this be problem? should I change it to home instead?
p.p.p.s. under win7, I add path from my computer -> add a network location -> \mini.local\media\sd\torrents
