i am sharing internet connection in my local network using NT server , but i installed Red hat 8 and i am trying to use it to share internet connection instead of the NT server. in my LAN i have Mandrake and windows, sharing files between Red Hat ( the server) and Mandrake is working almost fine.
but the problem is with windows box because i can't browse the other windows shared folders and they don't show the other windows computer in windwos neighbourhood. so i have some questions :
1)- how could i share files between windows box while i am using Red Hat as a server
2)- is it possible allow direct connection of instant messenger ( yahoo, msn messenger ..) realplayer.... without any firewall setting.
i read some where that there are an iptable script for that but i can't find it again
