computer name is not accessible


Hi everyone

My Server had crashed due to a faulty network card. I reinstlled Linux and Samba (and a new network card ) on the server. I also installed LinNeighborhood as well. I configured the Linux server to see the share on my windows 2000 domain but i cannot access the Linux Server on my windows machines. I can ping the ip address but and I see the machine on my 200 network but when i click on it i ge "computername" is not accessible. The network path was not found. I think I may have configured the smb.conf file wrong

Any Ideas

To start with, check smb.conf carefully for typos in the NetBioS name and the IP addresses on the HOSTS line. Check name-to-IP mappings in /etc/hosts, /etc/hosts.allow, /etc/hosts.deny, and your lmhosts file.
Also check the output of ps -ax to make sure that both smbd and nmbd are running.

Ok I could not find anything really in The smb.conf file that look out of place except that i added another [public] in it. In etc/hosts I have 127.0.0.1. ACS_NT. (the name of the Linux machine) localhost. In etc/host.allow I have swat 127.0.0.1 192.168.1. (note swat does not work as i am using LinNeighborhood). etc/hosts.deny has nothing in it. lmhosts has 127.0.0.1 localhost.

But the weird thing is smbd and nmbd does not look like it is running how can i start them

Both the hosts and lmhosts files should have entries for your machines in addition to the localhost entries:
Code:
#
 # Sample Samba lmhosts file.
 #
127.0.0.1       localhost
192.168.1.1    <Linux_NetBIOS _name>
192.168.1.2    <Win_NetBIOS_name>
You should be able to do "samba start" to start the daemons maually.

ok do i put it exactly how you have it for the host files or do i have to put the ip Address of the names of my Linux machines and the windows server machines?

Do I just type in samba start at the command prompt?
