Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have an odd problem here. I have installed Samba for the first time on a box running Red Hat 9. I have created a simple smb.conf file and a single share. I have two other computers running windows 95 and the 2nd is running windows ME. The Windows 95 computer sees the share, lets me copy files to it and everything. No problem there, now the weird thing is the ME will not see the Samba server.
The ME will see the 95 though, and the 95 box will see both the ME and the Samba. I've checked and rechecked the networking sections and they are both the same on both computers. I have IPX, NetBEUI and TCIP/IP installed on both systems. I use IPX for some older networking games so I need it, but I don't need NetBEUI and I tried deleting it, but then I can't even network the win95 and winME computers together.
Also I can ping the Samba server from both Windows systems. I also want to print to a HP printer attached by USB to the windows ME system. In RH9 I was able to go to add printer and choose a SMB one and it said "dell", which is the name of the Windows ME computer, but I was not able to choose the shared printer under dell, it said something like not a valid name.
I just reread my post and realized that I probably should have given more details. I was using the standard IPTABLES firewall, but for the time being I have it turned off right now so that is not an issue.
I am using Samba verison 2.2.7a.
Any ideas that I could try would be appreciated!
I need some help ...
I have RH linux 8.0 and win 98 on my network...I have configured SMB and iam able to access Win files using smbmount on Linux box.....I can see linux machine on network neighbour hood on Windows 98 but when i click on machine it says "Access denied or the machine not found" I dont understand what is wrong ... I am logging in to linux as a root.....does that have anything to do can u please guide me.........
make sure you have the correct "host allow" line.
But you'll probably never be able to make a correct network file sharing system work with both win95 and winME, since the old crappy win95 don't use any password encryption, and cause problem with every others windoze who actually use it. So in samba, you should put "encryp password" option to yes for winME but to "no" for win95. not sure if winME can handle something without encryption but I had problem with this and an old Win98 SE computer, so...
It works ........ It was only becoz of firewall......
I can see my Linux box on all the Windows machines.....
One more thing is, i want to use My Linux as primary DNS server and also internet sharing for which i have configured smb.conf also but its not working.......
One more thing is, i want to use My Linux as primary DNS server
ok, get BIND, it's the most used DNS server, it works great for me (I have a Linux box acting as a DNS/NAT router for my entire network). It's very complex but you should be good if you spend some time reading man/how to
and also internet sharing for which i have configured smb.conf also but its not working.
I'm not sure to understand, there, you want to share the files your share using SAmba over internet??? Well, Samba isn't make to do it, neither Windoze file sharing. I suggest you to use a good Ftp server or maybe an Apache server.
Me is facing one prob .....Having LISA up and runing but cant find the share folders in the lan browser....I can mount the folder and than access the network .......but its not that effective... I am having RH8.0 cant even use line neighbourhood.......There has to be some way where we can access the folders using lan browser any one can pls guide me...
