Re: [Samba] Samba Share : Connection refused

Hi Rowland,

thanks for your fast reply. Maybe there was a problem on format in the
email as testparm works fine on my server. But I also did not write
about distribution and version, sorry.
This conf is given by Yast tool from SuSE LEAP 42.2 by default. I just
added the few parameters I need. So maybe I should clean out a bit - I
still do not need any domain settings.
But does this the trick?

Hi everyone,

I have a small issue on our main samba server. We added a hardware
firewall with different zones and now I want to get access from new
development LAN (192.168.4.) to samba (192.168.0.) but I get
information about access denied on windows 7 (net use Error 5).
Firewall is open to all internal LANs. I checked the smb.conf and,
for me, it seems to be fine. I added hosts allow before holiday and
it worked, but after my holiday access is denied. Maybe I am blind
and you may give me a hint, please...

There appears to be something wrong with that smb.conf. If I I copy it
into a file on my computer and run 'testparm' against it, I get this:

Or to put it another way, it doesn't seem to like any of your

Removing the leading blank space and replacing it with 4 spaces seems
to cure this. It then leads to the next problem, you have 'domain
master = No' and testparm now says your smb.conf is for a
'ROLE_STANDALONE', so why do you have all the domain settings ?
