Is samba working?
The command 'smbclient -L win_server' should list available shares on
On our network, I still have to give a username and password:
smbclient -U dan -L win_server
and I'm prompted for a password. Even though the printer is shared for
everyone ( all domain users? ), I still have to authenticate. I think.
It's been a while since I printed this way.
Also, is your Linux PC registered on the domain ( 'net join' )?
Do you get anything in your samba logs?
