View Full Version : map drive windows xp to fedora webserver

I'm trying to map a drive from my windows xp machine to my fedora webserver using samba. I'm not sure what version of samba I'm using, however it came with the latest version of fedora that I just downloaded from red hat.

What is happening is, when I map to /usr/share, it works, however I can't save a file. When I try to map it to /var/www/html it won't connect and it asks me for my login info, I give, and it just keeps asking.

In samba, I have set both up to be shared directories in samba. For the sake of solving the problem, I did chmod 777 on each directory leading up to the file I'm trying to access, restarted samba and still doesn't work.

Anybody have any other ideas?

I set selinux to permissive for the time being and I can connect fine from xp home, but not from xp pro?
