Sharing files with XP
I have some machines on my network, one of which is running fedora core 2 - the rest are on XP.
I am interested in being able to set up file sharing on the fedora machine so that my windows box can see and write to it. I have read posts around other forums about how to do this, but I am completely stuck...
What I have done so far:
*Tried* to configure samba
Started the smb service
Set the domain to the same as my XP box
Set the hostname to 'andy' in network settings
*Tried* to create a share read/write
I have also tried typing in the IP of the fedora machine in IE, \\10.0.0.11\ but it asks for a password.
Can anyone help a COMPLETE newbie to this set up file sharing?
If you need any more info, just say.
