[solved] samba between linux boxes

Post by callmejoe » Wed Feb 15, 2017 10:36 pm

hopefully i can get this across okay.

i have 2 linux boxes on my network, along with some windows PCs, running linux mint and raspbian. samba server configured on both. from the linux mint box if i try to connect to a windows PC i enter the samba password i set up for my username. however, when i try to connect to the raspbian box from linux mint i need to enter the samba username and password i set up on raspbian

is that how it's supposed to be?
