I have this problem with our samba setup - that no clients can access it. This problem started around september. Before that, I got it working as it should. At the moment, I can access the shares from the server itself using smbclient, but not from anywhere else.

I already determined that it shouldn't be a firewall problem, because iptables is still in its default setting.

Also tried changing the LAN manager settings of Win 7 (client).

The server is running a (slightly) modified version of Ubuntu Server 12.04.


workgroup = WORKGROUP
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
netbios name = gn122
server string = %h
unix password sync = yes
encrypt passwords = true
syslog = 0
name resolve order = bcast host lmhosts
domain master = no
panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d
security = user
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
wins support = yes
dns proxy = no
map to guest = Bad User

#printimise kinnikeeramine
printing = bsd
printcap name = /dev/null

comment = IT Haldus
path = /var/data/ithaldus
read only = no
write list = ivar
read list = ivar
valid users = ivar
browseable = yes
writable = yes
create mask = 0664
directory mask = 0755


Willing to provide additional information if needed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

You mention a slightly modified version of Ubuntu Server. These are the forums for Turnkey Linux (aka TKL) which is based on Debian (current stable built on Wheezy). So whilst they should be similar they are not the same. Further you may get someone to help here, but you may be better off trying Ubuntu Forums...

After posting I figured it might be in the wrong place. But I've managed
