Assuming u can, and assuming u have install samba on RH9, samba config files are all in /etc/samba/ directory. Here there should be smb.conf file. To make ur RH machine part of the same workgroup, edit the line below on smb.conf
workgroup = what_ever_the_workgroup_name_here
Next is creating a samba user. To do this u need a file call smbpasswd and initially on RH this file is not available. So u change directory to /etc/samba/ and do 'touch smbpasswd' and then create a user by executing the following command
'smbpasswd -a username'
Here u'll be asked to enter the password twice. Once all that is done, just restart samba.
and if u go back to the windows machine, u should be able to access the RH samba.
Think i didn't forget anything :-) anyways give it a go, let us know if it doesn't work.
Note this file needs to be in /etc/samba/. U also need to make
My WIN2000 can access the RH9 shares now.
But there is one more problem.
I tried to put my Root folder from RH9 to share .
I used my win 2000 to access the folder ,
i get a message " \\Localhost\root is not accessible. The netwoek name cannot be found"
But the strange is that i can access RH9 CDROM folder from WINDOWS!
i wonder if my Samba setting is set right!
But my CDROM settings from Samba is exactly the same as ROOT settings.
The Samba settings is displayed below.
guest account :nobody
