Hi guys and girls, I'm currently using Linux Fedora Core 4 on my desktop, and i couldn't figure out how to set up a smal office network. I can connect from my desktop to my laptop (which is running on windows) through my LAN address (192.168.0.100) but i can't connect my laptop to my desktop through my LAN. I've tried disabling the firewall but still doesn't work. Can anybody give some pointers on how to configure it?
At least now i can connect to my linux computer. But although I've already set the files in the samba server and the permissions onto the folder, I can't access the file. It says "do not have permission to use netwprl resource."
I think that starting command needs to be executed by root. /etc/rc.d/init.d/ is used at system startup, which means that your samba should be working after a system reboot.
If this wont help try to search your Linux for that smb executable file. It is possible that you have it on different path, or it wasnt set to start with whole system. While at sys console you can:
$ whereis smb
mc is means Midnight Commander, and its a program similar to Total Commander or Norton Commander. mc has search mechanism that you can use.
Keep posting here - dont give up. Step by step and you will finally make it. Trust me - we gonna feel awesome then :D.
