Home Intranet Problem


I have a SUSE 10.0 system and a Windoze Vista laptop connected through a Linksys WRT54GS router. Both systems have internet access and both systems can ping each other. However I cannot get other connectivity to work, such as Samba and FTP.

The network configurations on each system are pretty much set to defaults except I've turned off the firewalls on Vista.

I suspect something wrong with the router configuration, but I don't really know what.

Can someone point me to some good FAQs or give me some ideas on where to go next.

Thanks.

Did you configure your Linux firewall to open the ports used by samba? Also if the ftp server is on Linux, did you open the ftp server ports as well?

Thanks for your reply. I didn't see any place to configure a firewall on SuSe Linux. I looked in Yast but I may have missed it. Where should I look?

The option to configure the firewall is under the Security & Users section. This article has some information that may help. As for samba, take a look here.
