Samba config





ocalhoun
I have 2 computers:
1 SuSE 9.2pro/win2k
1 win98 SE

I want to network them; I got it to work with both of them being windows (so I do know a thing or two), but I can't get windows and linux to cooperate.

They can ping echother using IP addresses, but not computer names.
They are both configured to use the same workgroup.
Linux is running a firewall with default settings (is this the problem?)

Network browsing does not work for either one.

Anybody know what setting on either computer I need to fix?

Make sure Samba is running by typing

# pgrep smb

from a console or a terminal session. If its not running, you'll have to manually start it by typing

# service smb start

If that too doesnt work, you might want to check out the official Samba HOWTO which can be located at http://us2.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/ or the Samba guide http://us2.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-Guide/
