SuSe 9.2 cant access windont network


I am trying to get SuSe 9.2 box to access the shares on an XP Pro machine.

The problems I'm having are as follows........

1. The XP machine can see the linux box in network places but cannot access it.
2. The Linux machine cannot find any workgroups on the network.

both machines have IP addresses and i have configured both Samba server/client sections but still no luck.....

Any Ideas.

are you talking about KDE and network browsing ?
kde <--> samba packages installed ?

did you try

smbclient -U administrator -L //xp.box.ip.goes.here

ok. at least linux can see the windows shares.

this is ONE option (using lisa, needs configuring with control center):

http://support.novell.com/cgi-bin/se...assel_smb.html


the other one would be to install all kde-packages that relate to network and/or samba.

then there should be an Icon 'Network Browsing' on your desktop.
if not go to konqueror and type 'service:/' in the top line.

this should show 2 lines. one of them should be 'windows network'
just click on it and all workgroups and whatnot should show up.

Cheers for your support

Unhappy I have the same problem: Suse 9.2 can't access XP

If you finally solve the problem, let me know; I have exactly the same issue: I can see the Linux machine from XP (inside my MSHOME workgroup), but when I click on it there is no access.
Both machines can ping each other.
At the Linux suse 9.2 side I can also see the Windows icon, but after clicking on it it says that tere are no other workgroups available.

Do you have readed my posting (before yours) ? I have had the same problem too. And I posted my solution. Do you have tested this? It is my recommendation to do this first.
Now I wont post it again.

Thanks so much!

I tried and thought that it didn't work, but now I rebooted the system after the "no firewall" and then it started working.
I can access even my XP based printer from the Suse 9.2 tool.

Thanks!

Hm, I've got the same problem on fedora 3 gnome.
Code:
# mount -t smbfs //stue/stue /mnt/windows/
10432: Connection to stue failed
SMB connection failed
I see you've found out it is some firewall stuff, but I don't realy want to disable all firewall stuff. Have you any ideas of what parts of the firewall which I need to unlock?
Ping and smbclient works well as for The_Landlord.

Dunno if this helps

I thought I didn't have any luck with samba and all that, but without dropping my firewall I learned that you can still access WinXP from SuSE using 'smb://[WinXP IP address]' in konqueror

ex: smb://192.168.0.50

Hope that may help

I am probably too new to be of much help, but I had this problem too, and i still wanted to run my firewall, so I went into YaST, and configed the firewall, adding 'UDP 137' when I got to the 'Expert' button, and now I see the whole network neighborhood. Hope this may help you.
