Is Samba on Amiga compatible with Windows7?

Either I cannot configure Samba even using the manual or there is something wrong.

I see my pc's name under Entire network using Tango but when I dclick it, a requester comes saying timed out

I dont remember if i got it working with win 7 (wasnt always relighable in vista either), but in the end i found it easier to just fire up virtual XP in win7 and copy the files through that from the amiga share to a win7 share. Not a great solution, but works a treat

I hope someone is able to help me cause I'm stuck here. I can see an AMIGA icon when I click Network on Win7. But double clicking it gives an error can't connect to computer.

I never got this to work even with registry hacks and whatever is suggested in various support forums. The Samba versions available for the Amiga are just too old.

Strangely enough, you can assign a drive letter to the Amiga's shares, but Windows Explorer cannot access it. WinUAE can!

how do I assign a drive letter to Amiga shares?

For example if I share my GAMES: "DH1:" partion what kind of assign should I use?

Assign DH1: DH1: ?? seems unlikely

or you mean network drive from the Windows side?

In Windows open Network Neighborhood and select Extras -> Connect Net Drive from the menu (I don't know if this is the right text. In German it is "Netzlaufwerk verbinden".)

I have just been testing with Windows 7 and Amiga samba shares, and have managed to make it work

First of all I needed to change authentication level: Amiga samba does support NTLM v2, Win7 client's require it by default:
In Windows open "Gpedit.msc" and find / Computer Configuration / Windows Settings / Security Settings / Local Policies / Security Policies - "Network security: LAN Manager authentication level"
Set it to "Send LM and NTLM - Use NTLMv2 session security it negotiated"



Then I needed to set "Turn off password protected sharing" in / Network and Sharing Center / Advanced sharing settings.



Share the drive or folder as usual and give "Everyone" the needed permissions. I have chosen "Full control"



The last thing needed (I think this is what ancalimon is missing?) is to let the "Everyone" user actually have access to the folder or drive. I just added "Everyone" with "Full control" in the "Security Tab" of the folder.



Now I'm able to use my shared windows drives, just as I was when using XP. Hope it works for you as well.

Still trying (I can connect to Amiga drives using AmigaExplorer already)

How do I make my Amiga visible on the Network tab of Windows7?

I could connect to the Amiga using the IP I gave (192.168.2.4) but could not access the shares, though now it won't.

What about sharing a printer connected to a Win7 computer with the amiga? What if there is no driver for it on the amiga side and it is not postcript compatible either?
