Hi I'm new to linux, and have been trying to set up a network between a linux computer running Red Hat 9.0 and a XP computer (the network also has win95 computers).
The problem is, whenever I try to run "Network Servers" I get the error message:
Cant't Display Location
Couldn't display "smb:///", because Nautilus cannot contact the SMB master browser.
Check that an SMB server is running in the local network
I have looked "Server settings->Services", and for "smb" it says:
smbd (pid 2500) is running...
nmbd is stopped
(when i tell it to start nmbd still doesnt start)
Here's my smb.conf: (without the comments)
workgroup = mshome ;[I changed this]
server string = samba server
printcap name = /etc/printcap
load printers = yes
printing = cups
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 0
encrypt passwords = yes
smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
unix password sync = Yes
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passwd chat = *New*password* %n\n *Retype*new*password* %n\n *passwd:*all*authentication*tokens*updated*successfully*
pam password change = yes
obey pam restrictions = yes
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
guest ok = yes
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
dns proxy = no
How can I get onto the network and access the computers?
Must I have a SMB server?
(if I must, how do I set one up - can it be the linux machine?)
