Re: Samba FC4

Some of us have found that SELinux prevents Samba from working properly. In one case published earlier turning off SELinux features completely fixed the issue. In my case I went into Desktop/System Settings/Security Level SELinux Tab and turned off SELinux features for Samba. After that my shares re-appeared and seem to be working normally.

I just upgraded to Core 4.

Now my Samba server is not talking to a windows machine.

The settings in Samba and Folder permissions have not changed.

Am I missing something?

Forgive me if you already know this, but you didn't include much information.

The one thing I always read about when trying to set up Samba is that there isn't really an easy way to get it working. There are two work arounds I've read about, and neither I could do, so I never got it working. The first work around is to disable iptables. There is some kind of issue with iptables blocking packets or connections or something, so the only way to get all the packets and/or connections through is to disable iptables. This is something I was not willing to do. The second way around is to set up a WINS server so samba and talk through it to the other computers. I've had no experiance what-so-ever with an WINS server, so I can't help you there.
