I am trying to connect to a linux server which is set up as shares in samba. I am able to ssh and ping to the samba server, but when I attempt to map the drive through windows it says "Windows cannot access \ip\example.
Given that I could ssh to it tells me that the problem comes from the nmb side of things... I have restarted smb, nmb and also iptables, but still unable to connect.
*$iptables -S -P INPUT ACCEPT -P FORWARD ACCEPT -P OUTPUT ACCEPT -A INPUT -m state --state RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT -A INPUT -p icmp -j ACCEPT -A INPUT -i lo -j ACCEPT -A INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW -m tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT -A INPUT -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-host-prohibited -A FORWARD -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-host-prohibited*
testparm smb.conf results below:
*$testparm -s /etc/samba/smb.conf Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf rlimit_max: increasing rlimit_max (1024) to minimum Windows limit (16384) Processing section "[printers]" Processing section "[data]" Processing section "[Xerox]" Loaded services file OK.

I have read the post here but it seems to be a different scenario. Any suggestions are welcome.
