Hi trpjagan

I have the same problem, even i am trying to find out the solution for that, i had tried couple of utilities like linneighborhood and others but none of them is working, i had even posted my question on the forum, hope to get some reply for somebody

samba will not solve your problem, becuase the basic purpose of samba is to "accessing linux machine from a window environment, but it will not do it other way


Thanks

hi

do the following and u'll be able to excess the windows machine from a linux box

1) edit your smb.conf file and set the workgrou parameter same as of your windows, in case if u have a domain environment set the domain name in the smb.conf

eg:

WORKGROUP = (either ur workgrou or Domain name write it here)


2) make sure ur smb and nmb services are running, if not then start them

eg:

service smb start or restart
nmb by default start automatically

3) go to ur redhat icon on the lower left hand side of ur screen, click it and u'll c network servers icon there, click it workgroup icon will appear., double click it u'll c the windows machine there, double click, it will prompt u for the password

How to creat samba user is mentioned below

1) make sure u have one user availabel in ur linux box other than the root user

eg :

# smbpasswd -a (user name which is available in ur machine)

2) Restart the services

eg :

# services smb restart

All done
Let me in case of difficulties

Regards
Hardeep

Well i haven't work on FC5 yet & doesn't matter even if you are unable to see the button as what i have mentioned, instead what you can do is, on a command line just type the command "smbtree" it will prompt you for root password if you give it if you don't simply press enter, then open the nautilus manager and type "smb:///" which will give you all the machine available on the network, just to clear if you are unsure about how to open nautilus, type the same word on the command line and you'll have screen infront of you, then type the "smbtree" in the space given for the url

Thanks
