win xp to samba connecting problem
I have reinstalled my XP machine. Almost everything work fine, but I have problem with connecting to linux server on our home LAN. This linux machine is (or at least should be) configured right, because before reinstalling XP machine I can connect without any problems.
I tried to connect with total commander -> map network drive - than entered user name sun and my password. But it looks like the password is refused (i'm sure I have entered the right one). I also try to use: net use \\192.168.0.1\sklad , enter username password but again the password is refused... Anyone knows what am I doing wrong? Any ideas?
Oh and - other things work perfect. I can connect to internet using linux machine as gateaway, I can see this machine in workgroup computers...
Thank you very much in advance.

Ok, no one appears to be touching this so I will start the ball rolling, though I have no idea what the problem is: I donít use Total Commander and donít use Net use , and you did not say how the Samba Server was set up, nor did you say what services you have running on the XP box. ( maybe links will help )
Did you try to use ĒMy Network PlacesĒ to set it up ?
Is Samba configured to use encrypted passwords ? ( if you have older win boxes connected, it may not be )
I am assuming you set up the XP reinstall to the proper Workgroup:
Did you search and read through A.O. for similar problems, such as Making my LAN work or samba annoying etc.
I can see this machine in workgroup computers...
Going to bed now, but maybe this will start you in the right direction. Let us know how it turns out.
