Samba is doing strage things

Samba is doing strage things

Hi there,

I’m just installing linux lite on a computer. It’s supposed to be kind of a file server for the little workgroup (so far working under WinXP). There are 2 partitions that should be completely accessible from every computer in the workgroup. I went through…mbaServerGuide but I cannot access the computer, instead the remaining XP-computer can now not access the workgroup at all, error massage is no rights to access. So Samba is doing something, but not what it is supposed to do.

Here is the smb.conf, someone finds the errors? I tried it like in the manual with first creating a folder sambashare and added later the printer and one of the partitions that everybody should be able to access, the thing called [Daten]. Workgroupname is the same as in XP, on the other computer there is a different username (at the moment I’m working on my wife’s computer). The [liteshare] section was already there, I don’t know where that came from.
