[vox-tech] samba redux: "connection denied" from w2k server



hi all,

i know a whole lot more about MS windows networking than i did this
morning (but it still feels like i don't know much).

the linux samba server is a local, master and preferred browse master.
it's also a WINS server.  linux's IP address is 192.168.0.2.

the win2k machine is 192.168.0.4.

the goal is to browse linux's filesystem from win2k's "computers near
me".  but when i double click "computers near me" i get the error
"testgroup is not accessible.  the network path was not found".

after a bunch more of tinkering, i started to see these hopeful messages
in /var/log/log.smbd:

[2003/10/29 15:26:15, 0] lib/access.c:check_access(328)
  Denied connection from  (192.168.0.4)
[2003/10/29 15:26:15, 1] smbd/process.c:process_smb(883)
  Connection denied from 192.168.0.4
[2003/10/29 15:26:15, 0] lib/access.c:check_access(328)
  Denied connection from  (192.168.0.4)
[2003/10/29 15:26:15, 1] smbd/process.c:process_smb(883)
  Connection denied from 192.168.0.4
[2003/10/29 15:26:28, 0] lib/access.c:check_access(328)
  Denied connection from  (192.168.0.4)

hopeful because now i have something concrete to work with, whereas this
morning it "simply didn't work".

so win2k is denying connection from the linux samba server.  i'm HOPING
if i can figure out why, my networking problems will be over.

playing around with win2k, i found 2 things which are related to
security:

1. local area connection properties | TCP/IP | Properties | Advanced |
   Options | IP Security

2. local area connection properties | TCP/IP | Properties | Advanced |
   Options | TCP/IP filtering

unfortunately, by clicking on "properties" of both these items, it
appears that neither one is being used.

so i'm really stumped why 192.168.0.4 is denying the connection to
linux.

even more perplexing, i can ping win2k from linux.  so not ALL
connections are being denied.

anyone have any ideas?

pete
