I'm new to Linux and I recently installed RedHat 8.0. I have it connect to a XP machine. Everything seems to be networked correctly. I can get an IP address, ping, and get to the Internet through the XP machine.
I would like to file and print share between the two computers. I having trouble firguring it out.
The only problem I've been having of late with samba and my Windows machines is that when Samba becomes the browse master on my network, no one can browse the network anymore. As long as one of the Win machines is the browse master everything works like a charm. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to fix this?
I've tried every combination of the following to fix it, but to no avail:
local master = yes/no
domain master = yes/no
preferred master = yes/no
os level = 1/34
Sometimes security at the share level is not secure enough for people. Samba really is NOT that easy to do right. Yes, it is easy to get working using the bare minimum, but setting up a secure and working Samba server can be difficult, especially for a newbie so I see where RSB99 is coming from. Just look at my thread on Samba and XP. It's took 3 pages worth of comments before we got it all figured out.
This link is just the SIMPLEST way to get things shared. I throuhg together a little something to get the beginers going, as am I. This is the easiest way to share something on the network. http://hellzone.no-ip.com/home/samba.html
I hope it helps!
