help with networking linux systems
i can get a windows box to see my samba share, i can get a linux box to see my windows share (mount them with smbmount), but i can not get a linux system to see an other linux system and mount or smbmount my samba share.
i would use the search, but have no clue what to search for so pointers would be great please.
over the past year or so i have learned a lot in the linux world, and am still feeling so much like a newbie, but know i am way better then i was in the start. a large portion of that is due to this great site.
for testing i have been using my debian sarge laptop as the system i want to connect to as it has a known good running samba server that my gaming box at the house connects to all the time.
at my office (i took my laptop there for testing) i just redid one of my workstations and took it off of XP and moved it to debian sarge. 2.4-sepakup kernel if that matters.
i have the debian box up and running 95%. the only thing i need to do now is learn how to make it talk to my laptop and to a RH9 workstation also running a known good samba server that windows can connect to with zero problems.
if i can get the new workstation to talk with the laptop, then i am hoping i can learn how to make it also talk to the RH9 workstation that i use for my POS (point of sale) computer at my school. this is the end goal.
thanks again for the help and guidance.
