Re: Samba mount fails on Fedora FC5

Hi Akemi,

Thanks a lot for your very fast response..

In the meantime I did some more research and found out the reason; the problem was on Win XP side (what else you would expect ? :)..

I found in the Win XP eventviewer the following error:

Error: The server's configuration parameter "irpstacksize" is too small for the server to use a local device. Please, increase the value of this parameter..

Then I found it by googling that this can be modified using regedit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services \lanmanserver\parameters

There was actually no IRPStackSize parameter defined on my Windows box at all, so I created a DWORD and set the value to 15, as it was suggested. After a reboot on Win XP side everything started working.

A couple of questions.  Can you connect to that share using smbclient?
How about from a Windows box?
