I have a CentOS websver with a Samba share set up (
I was connected to this share just yesterday without issue, but today my Windows 8 PC will not connect to it. I've also tried making a connection from Windows 7 and Windows XP, all without success.
I initially tried restarting my computer, but that did not work. I then tried restarting the Samba service on the webserver (
service smb restart), and when that failed I restarted the webserver.
All of that was to no avail, and I still cannot connect to the share.
The webserver is contactable from my PC (and the others I tried), as the websites it hosts work fine and I'm able to Putty to the server.
When connected to the webserver, I can see that Samba is running by using
service smb status -
service smb status
smbd (pid 4685) is running...
nmbd (pid 4688) is running...
Can anyone please help me to get this share working?
Here is my full Samba config (
[global] workgroup = MYGROUP server string = Samba Server %v log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m max log size = 50 security = user encrypt passwords = yes socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192 local master = no [websites] comment = Websites browseable = yes writable = yes path=/var/www/html/ valid users = dgard
