I've been searching posts and reading samba.org for the better part of a day now and I'm still not close to solving my problem. I'm starting to go a little nutz!
Ok. I'm not trying to do anything too difficult (I think). I have a Win2K domain and I want to use my Linux Redhat 9 laptop to connect to shares on the WIN2K server. That is all I'm trying to do. Nothing else. I have the latest version of Samba installed and (for now) I'm manually starting the smbd and nmbd daemons. Everytime I try either:
smbmount //hkd-server/data /mnt
mount -t smbfs -o userrname=xxx,password=xxx //hkd-server/data /mnt
I get the following error:
Error connecting to 192.168.1.10 (Connection refused)
2325: Connection to hkd-server failed
SMB connection failed
Upon further research, I began to think that I needed to have my linux laptop added to my Win2K domain. This fails as well. I've tried net join -U administrator and it returns:
failed: Cannot find KDC for requested realm
Joined domain HKD-LAND.
All I want is access to the files stored on my Win2k server. Am I missing something oblivious here? Is there another way to do this? In other words, I'm open to suggestions at this point. Please advise me, oh wise ones.
