Make sure you have a local and a smbuser named administrator on your SuSE box.

Add a local user administrator (easily done in yast)
add a SMB user administrator (smbpasswd -a administrator)

Make sure you have security = user and encrypt passwords = yes in your /etc/smb.conf

Hope this helps

Hello all.

I only want to configure my Suse linux 7.0 machine and Windows 2000
Professional to access from Win2000 to Linux. Not the printers. The
printers are not important for me.From Win2000 I want to see the
contents of the directory tree in linux machine. From windows 2000 I
only see the Icon but when I double-click the icon a dialog box appears
to tell me that I haven't permission to access to this machine. I login
into linux as root and into Windows 2000 as Administrator.
I don't know what happen because I think I setup all resourcess as
public, browseable and writable. More public impossible, I think. The
way to connect is as workgroup, not as domain.

Thank you very much.
