Samba - How does an Apple Mac do it?


I am running a Windows domain using Server 2000. All Windows users can see the Linux (Fedora 3) shares and access. So far so good!

When someone connects a Mac (uses Samba I am told) to the network, they can see all of the workstations (Linux and Windows). If they select a Workstation, they are asked for the appropriate user and password and can log on and access the shares. This is all done without any changes on the Mac or PDC.

Can I configure our Linux notebooks to do the same?

If so, what changes do I make to the smb.conf?

Many thanks.....

Todd

most linux distros these days can do that automatically...
check that you have the samba client installed, and both in kde and in gnome you should be able to surf the network using the "smb://" protocol...

I can surf the network and get the workstations; however, if I cleick on a workstation, it says that I do not have permission - it does not ask for user and pw (which is what I would like to have happen).

It works as expected on the Linux workstations.

I forgot to add that I am able to use smbclient to access the Windows workstations and their shares.
