    Default Unable to connect multiple samba shares

    I am not able to map multiple samba shares using different user name/id. If I mapping a new samba share (network drive)as a different user in on Windows XP, Error poppup window:

    " The network forlder specified is currently mapped using a different user name and password, first disconnect any existing mapping to this network share"

    The reason I want to have multiple connections at the same time using different users is: in one program I want to map a network drive for users to share documents; in another program I want to map a different share/drive with different name/id to run financial program. Is this the problem of samba or MS OS? Is there any way to get/fix problem?
    Thanks.

    Default PROBLEM wih multiple users loging from WIndows to LInux SAMBA.

    Hi fella
    whenever client samba machine i.e. windows establishes connection with samba server , it does not allow to connect to same server via another name. the reason behind it is Windows does not support multi-user logging .
    Thus to connect to server via another name one has to log 0ff and then connect with another name.
    solution for ur problem is to either create a common group or configure share definition accordingly.
