I run smbclient -L <hostname> I see all the shares but when I try to actually get a directory listing I get a permission denied error. Grrr..

The solution from [url=http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Setup_Samba]http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Setup_Samba[/url] I get a Permision denied message trying to access a Windows 2000, XP, 2003: Make sure you have Guest account enabled on Windows machines and Guest have sharing permissions over the shares. Sometimes this is not trivial due to the permissions editing of a carpet is not shown by default in some Windows systems. If it is enabled, right click on the share, pick up the Permissions section and add Guest user with the appropriate rights (probably full control full control can be security risk. "Modify" provides read/write and create/delete without the more dangerous abilities).

And now I can the website backed up. yay
