Things that make me rage: Samba

Oh yeah, so I mentioned Samba in the other thread.

Let's try something different: Here's the current config file. Nothing special.

All I want the damn thing to do is have the IPC share browsable, for me to be able to connect to my own shares, etc... but can't even do basic stuff. The below config is after hours of tweaking and attempting to fix it.

In its current state, it just keeps asking for U/P, and won't accept any of them. It's almost like it doesn't know how to look up accounts from its own configuration and wants to go off to some other domain for users etc.

I had this issue with Ubuntu and Windows a while ago.. pissed me off. I fixed it and then it broke again after an update but it was a documented bug with Ubuntu but I cannot remember what it was sorry. In the end I f***ed it off and went back to Windows haha - CAUSE THAT ACTUALLY WORKS!! lolz!!!1

Auth is normally handled by pam
What does

cat /etc/pam.d/samba


Also I have found this guide to be pretty useful in the past since its well commented

what version? the newer versions have issues if ipv6 is enabled and it can't reverse lookup your IP... disabling ipv6 for the OS fixes this.

Is it something like read permissions for world on the directory you're accessing as guest?

I'm trying to not access it as guest.

Also, I hadn't thought to look in the logs:

just for a laugh, do "smbpasswd -a nobody"
set a pass of pass123
and then adduser nobody
set a pass of pass456
then try and login with both combos, check which one works if any

if the first one works, it's using it's own db for auth
if the second one works, it's using pamd/local passwd files for auth

if neither work, its borked
