Question : Samba share on Windows 2003

I am trying to access a Samba share that is on a SLES 11 box from a Windows 2003 server.  I have ports 137 through 139 (tcp and udp) open on my firewall for my SLES server.  When I browse on the Windows system and enter \\<ip address of server>, I get a listing of all of the shares on the SLES system.  When I click on a share, I am prompted for a user/password, but no matter what I enter I am rejected authentication.

My config is as follows:


 workgroup = WORKGROUP
        printing = cups
        printcap name = cups
        printcap cache time = 750
        cups options = raw
        map to guest = Bad User
        include = /etc/samba/dhcp.conf
        logon path = \\%L\profiles\.msprofile
        logon home = \\%L\%U\.9xprofile
        logon drive = P:
        usershare allow guests = Yes

comment = Test Samba Share
        path = /path_to_data
        browseable = Yes
        read only = No

I can browse on my windows machines to \\ip_address_samba_server and see all the shares listed.  When I try to launch a share, I am prompted for authentication and whatever I enter it will not accept.  I have been trying \\ip_address_samba_server\root and the root password.

Any advice?

Did you add the root by using command smbuser and setting password for root with command smbpasswd?

A Linux user should have the separate smbpasswd to access the smbshare from the different system like Windows
