http://forums.opensuse.org – I have 3 computers: "win" running WinXP "old" running OpenSuSE 7.2 (ancient) "new" running OpenSuSE 11.2 I have a shared directory on "win", which I can mount fine on /win From "old" touch /win/rrr - as root: works touch /win/uuu - as my normal login works From "new" touch /win/rrr - as root: works touch /win/uuu - as my normal login FAILS I get permission denied. I've tried a thousand variations, nothing gets me past this. There are no firewalls involved. My user account on both "old" and "new" are as identical as I can make them. I've read more articles about file sharing and samba than I can stand. Someone please help. The only clue I have is that the output from smbclient on the two Linux boxes has a difference. On the one that works, it prints out "Domain=[MSHOME]..."; on the one that fails it prints out "Domain=[WIN]..." where WIN is the host name of the XP machine. - Chuck (Distributions)
