OK, I can now write to the Samba share from the desktop too. I haven't touched the config since the last attempt when it didn't work. What the hell?

Hah, I had the opposite problem with Vista at first: 64-bit clients worked just peachy, but 32-bit wouldn't at all. I don't remember what caused that to go away now.

Congrats on getting the ruttin' thing cooperating, though.

Yes, though the fact that I don't know what finally caused it to work is a little vexing.

Here's the current /usr/local/etc/smb.conf
[global]
workgroup = WORKGROUP
netbios name = dimension
security = share

[share1]
path = /usr/networkshare/share1
writeable = yes
guest ok = yets
guest account = ftp
guest only = yes


I notice an error in there: guest ok = yets

samba is prolly wondering what the hell is yets.

I'll fix that and hopefully it will keep working!

Here is the output of testparm (after fixing the spelling error)

$ testparm
Load smb config files from /usr/local/etc/smb.conf
Processing section "[share1]"
Global parameter guest account found in service section!
Loaded services file OK.
Server role: ROLE_STANDALONE
Press enter to see a dump of your service definitions

[global]
        security = SHARE

[share1]
        path = /usr/networkshare/share1
        read only = No
        guest only = Yes
        guest ok = Yes

just an update: samba sharing at home is going great! FWIW I think using "guest account = ftp" works well along with all the guest permissions I tossed in the conf file. Yay, fun!
