i am going to configure samba on linux 5 which is the guest os on wmware.my host os is win 7.
in linux when past the command like
smbtree. it give this error ...my host system name is Home-pc
error message is
cli_rpc_pipe_open:cli_nt_create failed to open pipe /srvsvc to machine home-pc err.
First need is that you put both Win & Linux machines in same network domain. So set some domain first. Also check your Windows PC's FQDN or is this a part of some WORKGROUP? The linux should also belong to the same network. Also both machines should know each other, not just with their IPs, but with hostnames/FQDN. To do this, set domainname in your Linux machine & make it a part of the same domain as your Win machine is in.
Check your /etc/resolv.conf file and nameserver entries in it, if not, then make the same nameserver entries in it as your Windows machines has.
After that, you can install samba server like:
sudo apt-get install samba smbfs
