Hello, I'm trying to use samba to share printer with windows box. For now I'm just trying to get a basic share to work. My smb.conf file is really small:

Code:
[global]
workgroup = WORKGROUP
netbios name = architect
security = share

hosts allow = 127.0.0.1 192.168.19.0/24
hosts deny = 0.0.0.0/0
local master = no

[tempspace]
comment = Data
path = /mnt/win_tmp/tmp
guest ok = yes
browseable = yes


I can log into samba by running $ smbclient //127.0.0.1/tempspace from the local terminal, and giving a blank password
I can log into samba using my linux laptop by $ smbclient //architect/tempspace and giving a blank password
but I can't log into samba share using windows 7 machine on the same network. When I try to map a new drive it says that it CAN reach architect, but tempspace is not found.

I also don't see any logs with errors :(

Where else to look?
