I've got Ubuntu 8.04 connected to my work domain and attached to it I've got
an external USB hard drive. I've got a lot of documents and music on this
drive that I'm trying to share out across the LAN. I've tried using the GUI
to share the folder and this seems to work OK until I use another machine to
connect to it and am prompted for a username and password.
I've tried setting up users on my machine and then also adding them as Samba
users but I'm still asked for a username and password. I've tried to do a
recursove chmod on the folders and that makes no difference. I've even added
the details of the share to my smb.conf file but am still having no joy.
Can anyone help me out with this?
