Networking with windows using sambe
I have just installed ubuntu linux 5.04 and trying to make network connection (home) with other computer on which is installed windows XP. Name of win computer is New_comp and it is in workgroup Mshome by default.
I have installed samba server on linux machine, entered static IP 192.168.0.2 and i can ping New_com on 192.168.0.1.
When I go to Networking (through gnome start menu), I can see New_comp and icon Windows networking but I cannot access to New_comp. When try I get error message something like New_comp cannot be browsed or similar.
I defined my shared folders (/home) as samba.
On the other hand in windows in My network places I can see computer named ubuntu (samba) but when I try to open it I get login/password box connecting on localhost.localdomain and it asks me for login and password. I tried to enter login and paswword of linux machine but no success, so basicaly I cannot accee linux machine from Windows machine.
I believe I missed some step in configuration procedure.
Can you give me any advice?
Thanks in advance
