Redhat Samba with Win95
Ok, I'm in this company that refuses to upgrade, so I'm installing samba server on a linux machine, that will coexist with an NT server and their windows 95 workstations.
What I've done today, but still can't get Windows 95 to view the shared resources on Samba server:
-Install RedHat 9 w/ Samba (2.0.3?)
-Tested the install. testparm and smbstatus works good. Both machines are able to ping each other.
-Tried smbclient -L localhost -U user, could work, but I couldn't seem to find the name of the server. (I could only use localhost and nothing else, how do I check the name of my server?)
-Configured the 95 client. Installed TCP/IP for the network card. Couldn't work. Tried installing all sorts of drivers like IPX/SX etc. Couldn't work as well. Tried removing conflicting devices. No help. Whenever I got into the network neighbourhood section, I get an "Unable to browse the network" error message.
I'm quite confused over many things, mainly, how do I create a specific shared directory and allow the windows users to use it? I think I've got some steps mixed up.
If there's any informative help I'd gladly appreciate it. Otherwise tomorrow I'll redo everything over again and post a more detailed story.
Is there a good site that can teach me step by step? Every single detail?
