I just installed Samba on my CentOS 6.4 computer. Smbstatus says my version is 3.6.9-151.el6-4.1.
My smb.conf file only has a [global] and [homes] section.
My configuration works, as expected, from a Win7 Virtual Box computer and a Win8 Virtual Box computer. I can see the share from the Windows file explorer and can map the share to a network drive. The samba server is not virtual.
The problem is my wife’s Win7 laptop which is running some sort of home edition of Win7. I did everything I could in control panel to enable file sharing but I still can’t see the Samba share. I can ping the computer running Samba? I tried to launch “gpedit.msc” but this program was not there.
Do you think it would work if I upgraded Samba to the latest version
4.1? Should I consider upgrading to Win7 professional?
Thank you, Joe Hesse
