file sharing by using samba
I have two computers. win 2k server is installed in one computer and red hat linux 9 is installed in another computer.
I installed samba 3.04 on linux computer to share files. I am using webmin to configure samba and other stuff. I can see server name(linux) in "Computers near me" section on win 2k server, but when i try to access it, it says "\\frodo is not accessible. The network path was not found". i double-checked if samba is running. it's running ok.
can anybody tell me how to do it?
Can you access the linux-shares with \\ip.address via start->run ?
Do you have an entry for netbios in smb.conf?
thank you for reply.
no, i can access with ip address.
and i have an entry for netbios in smb.conf like this
Could you post your smb.conf ?
Do you have a samba-user added?
Try adding a wins server to the windows-machine, with the ip of your linuxmachine.
Assuming that your name resolution is working and \\someip works...
I think what is happening is that there are no shares configured. The W2K isn't able to parse our \\frodo properly. Samba won't have any C$ or shares so there won't be anything for it to connect to and since \\frodo isn't a complete UNC path so it errors
Edit your smb.conf file and make sure you have some kinda share there Here is a really fast (but insecure example) Put it toward the end of the smb.conf file. Log in as root. If it works, remove this stuff and do it right.
path = /home
public = yes
only guest = yes
writable = yes
printable = no
