Hi all.

I created a smb-share on my el6 for all windows-pcs in my
home-network (I'm the only Linux-User in my family) for sharing all the
stuff we have, like music and videos and documents. The share will be
shown on the other pcs (Windows XP), but they can't open it. The
error-message ist "Share not found" on our preferred language of course!

sh-4.1# cat /etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/files/file_contexts.local
# This file is auto-generated by libsemanage
# Do not edit directly.

/data(/.*)?    system_u:object_r:samba_share_t:s0

FIREWALL-CONFIG (Port 901 is for SWAT)

SAMBA-CONFIG  "Alice im Wunderland" is the testfile I uploaded with
disabled Firewall and disabled SELinux
