[vox-tech] More Samba Goodness



I just set up Debian on an old laptop with the intent of using it as a
server for certain files.  I'm having a debil of a time getting Samba to
work, though.

Here is smb.conf:

lucien:/etc/samba# cat smb.conf
# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from 192.168.1.163 (192.168.1.163)
# Date: 2004/01/25 23:03:06
 
# Global parameters
[global]
        workgroup = MY_WORKGROUP
        netbios name = LUCIEN
        server string = Library Server
        security = SHARE
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        obey pam restrictions = Yes
        pam password change = Yes
        passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd
        passwd chat = *New*password* %n\n *Retype*new*password* %n\n
*Passwd:All*Authentication*tokens*updated*successfully*
        unix password sync = Yes
        log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
        max log size = 0
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
        dns proxy = No
 
[Library]
        comment = Readerware Server
        path = /opt/library
        force group = crawford
        read only = No
        create mask = 0777
        force create mode = 0777
        directory mask = 0777
        guest ok = Yes
        hide dot files = No

As you can see, I've got SWAT working just fine.  I don't have X working
on this computer, but I can access SWAT from another computer on the
network.  I can testparm just fine, with no errors.  I can execute
smbclient on Lucien with no errors.:


lucien:/etc/samba# smbclient -L lucien

I can ping Lucien with no problems, I can telnet to port 139 on Lucien. 
I have confirmed that both smbd and nmbd are running.  Running netstat
-a, I get...

lucien:/etc/samba# netstat -a

...which seems right to me.

But when I try to browse to Lucien through Windows Network, I can't see
the Library share.  I should say that I have another server with Samba
running in this network (Hagrid) and I can browse there just fine... and
the smb.conf files are mostly identical on both servers (with the
appropriate differences for the servers, of course).

Anyone got any ideas?
