Last I check "linux" wasn't a distro. Are you using Redhat 9.0?

Assuming the share is on the linux client, you need samba. If you are accessing a Windows share from linux, you can use the command line smbclient, smbmnt, or smbmount.

It will also matter if this is a Domain security or workgroup. Probably a little more info on what you are doing will help

#1. Is the shared folder located on the linux client or Windows Server?

#2. Are clients accessing other client's shared folders? (yes/no)

#3. Is this a domain or workgroup, in other words, do they log on with network IDs?

#4. Does the Windows Server need access to client shares? (yes/no)

I'm failing to see where the server enter the equation and therefore why it was included in the post. Sounds like NFS should do all you need.
If you answer these 4 questions, I can guide you through the process. And for the record, you don't have linux 9.0 as the kernel is only at 2.6.10. Your distrobutions version is 9.0 which is what I was asking for.

Dear Sir,

Thanks for reply.

Acctually i have windows200o server with dns setup.

i made a entry of dns record as client'machine name and that ip in win2000

then i enter that ip and machine name with domain name on the client system.



my linux client cannot access shared folders of each other. i can see any option of sharing in the properties window of a folder like window.


yes i also want that windows should access linux client shared files.

Sorry for my poor english

Thanks
