    I followed this "howto" and it is running really nice. But now I would like to install samba to share files

    I tried:

    sudo apt-get install samba

    And set my smb.conf as (by testparm):

    Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
    rlimit_max: rlimit_max (1024) below minimum Windows limit (16384)
    Processing section "[homes]"
    Loaded services file OK.
    Server role: ROLE_STANDALONE
    Press enter to see a dump of your service definitions
    	server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu)
    	interfaces = eth0
    	bind interfaces only = Yes
    	map to guest = Bad User
    	obey pam restrictions = Yes
    	pam password change = Yes
    	passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
    	passwd chat = *Enter\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *password\supdated\ssuccessfully* .
    	syslog = 0
    	log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
    	max log size = 1000
    	dns proxy = No
    	usershare allow guests = Yes
    	panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d
    	comment = Home Directories
    	valid users = %S
    	read only = No
    	create mask = 0700
    	directory mask = 0700
    If I try to mount like this (dir /mnt/server created):
    sudo mount -t cifs // /mnt/server
    I get the error:
    wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //,
           missing codepage or helper program, or other error
           (for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might
           need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program)

    If I try to access by Nautilus:
    I get the error

    Não foi possível montar a localização
    Falha ao montar o compartilhamento Windows
    My Ubuntu is pt-br, in english it would be something like:

    It wasn't possible to mount location
    Failed mounting Windows share
    The log in /var/log/samba/log.myhost give me:

    [2010/07/15 22:21:49,  0] printing/print_cups.c:103(cups_connect)
      Unable to connect to CUPS server localhost:631 - Connection refused
    But I don't have cups installed, and I think nothing in my smb.conf is calling for cups...

    Please, any help. Thanks.

    I figured out that if I try to mount like this:

    sudo mount -t cifs // /mnt/server -o username=usuario,password=senha
    It works. But it's not good to have to type the password like this, because of the bash history. And I can't use Nautilus to mount the share.

    So, I am still waiting for help.

    Thanks again
