my suse9.3pro server needed an update, and because there were other settings not ok, i decided to do a full re-install..
the previous probs were not related to my q..
after re-install and initial setup - where the sys detected the nic and router alright - i could setup the local network and also connect both ways (win-lin and vise versa)..
after the usual personal modifications were done - and after a few restarts - i suddenly cannot do an online update via yast - just hangs there - until i kill the window..
i can browse the inet ok..from the lin box concerned..
also connect from win boxes to the lin box via samba..
but not from lin to the win boxes..
also ping both ways is ok..
when trying to open SMB Shares a window pops up and tells me
that there is a prob with libsmbclient, but that it did not specify what the prob is..
that it might indicate a severe prob with my network - but might also indicate a prob with libsmbclient..
pls provide a tcpdump of the network interface while you try to browse..
and then ofcourse the other snag - yast update is freezing - could these two probs be related..?
i have actually done 3 complete re-format and installs - but the sys always replicates to the exact same prob..
