Smb Shares On Winsrv2003
Posted 08 September 2003 - 03:08 AM
I spent a great deal of time working on this today. I wasn't able to find any posts on xbox-scene regarding this issue, so now that I have resolved the problem, hopefully I can share some valuable information. I finally found the solution (posted in a different context), on samba.org.
Solution: Windows Server 2003 is more secure than any of the previous Windows OS's. Windows Server 2003 requires signature of SMB packets by default. In order to disable the digitally signed communications you need to make the following registry hack on your Windows Server 2003:
Content: 0 to disable, 1 to enable
Reboot the server.

Frankly, I haven't found much info on this at all and any input would be most appreciated.

1. Make a user account on your windows machine.
2. Share the folders you want the xbox to use then change the premission for only read only for the xbox user.
3. add the following to your XBMC.xml config file.
<name>XBMC DISPLAY NAME</name>
<path>smb://WINDOWS ACCOUNT USERNAME:WINDOWS ACCOUNT PASSWORD@IP ADDRESS0/WINDOWS SHARE NAME</path>
I hope this helps

In other words to I need to go about setting up a "samba" compliant share or will standard windows shares work fine?

I have created a new account and I can access the share folder but nothing is displayed. What can I do?
