      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Quick question. How can I set windows 7 up so that upon boot it automatically connects/allows access to the samba share? As at the moment each time I boot the machine and open my windows program I need to enter the samba details. I would like to automate this process.

You would need to map a drive and make it persistent so that it connects each time you reboot.

Thanks Ian.

 

Well I was able to map the drive so it appears in explorer on reboot. It has a red x in it at first, click on it tehn it connects. So that side of it is fine.

 

The drama now is in the program I use, when I open the program, then I go to open the file windows security pops up asking for username and password for the samba share. aargh...So close.

 

Windows security is a flipping nightmare. It seems to only stop the innocent. lol

 

Update:

This program (MYOB) usually asks for administrator rights, so I created a scheduled task that allows it to start on boot with out asking for admin rights. Now, if I allow that 'short cut' that I made with scheduled tasks to be 'run as administrator' in the properties box, I get asked for admin rights, which I allow, then I connects to the samba share without a password. So somehow I need to modify the damn permissions on MYOB to allow all this to occur automatically...argh.

Make sure your username and password for Windows and Linux are the same, then it won't ask.
