i have posted this problem in over 10 different forums but no reply yet received. plz help me here. if i am not clear with what my problem is plz reply so that i can explain what else details are required.
my pc is connected in a LAN
recently i have started using Linux. i have configured my samba so that i can share my files.
My PC ip address is 10.100.96.44.
here is few lines from my samba conf file.
workgroup = MYGROUP
netbios name = MYPCNAME
i am able to access other PC's which are in my subnet (10.100.96.*) with the NETBIOS name but to access other PC's i should use their ip address (eg. 10.100.97.*)
Also PC's in my subnet can access my system with my NETBIOS name (MYPCNAME) but systems in other subnet can't.
when i was using windows i was able to access all PC's (regradless of which subnet they are in) with their netbios names.
our lan uses Dynamic IP addressing.
please can someone help me with what my smb.conf file should contain to access all PC's with their netbios names?
PS: when i enter ipconfig in windows i get the following details.
Windows IP Configuration
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix :
IP Address : 10.100.96.44
Subnet MAsk : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway : 10.100.96.4
may be this would help in determining what my smb.conf should contain
