Hi guys. and happy Turkey Day!
i can ping both ways, and can map from linux to windows, but still cant map from windows to linux.
so i guess, what do i need to do to get windows to map a folder from linux. i cant see it in network neighboorhood, or map from CMD.
i edited the host file. (for others, its in the <Win_Root>\system32\drivers\etc) had to remove the .SAM ext. the host file has no extension. added the host info for the linux machines. (i didnt add the windows info since it already works.)
i have tried turning off my firewall on linux, im behind a router anyways, but i dont know if it worked. as sugested in other posts, i logged in with gnome and started lockit, turned off firewall. went back in to the util and it looks like it defaulted back to high security. i dont know if my changes where saved, is there anyway to verify they kept?
thanks to all you guys for your help this far. with you guys, i know i can kick this windows habbit
