viewing Fedora 10 Share on XP Machine


managed to setup SAMBA and enabled it on Fedora 10 Firewall, now i can view the XP machine and it's shares and even copy contents over - but i can't see my Fedora 10 PC from XP ??

i can see the XP machine from Fedora 10 but cannot see the Fedora 10 machine from XP...

what else to i need to enable so i can get access to the windows XP Printer? Which is already share-enabled?

did you create a samba share on the fedora 10 machine?

unlike windows file sharing samba is divided more cleanly into server/client
if you need a gui interface to create samba shares try http://www.webmin.com

yes i have created shares on Samba... i have enabled both SAMBA and SAMBA-Client on Fedora 10 machine, this enabled my Fedora 10 to see my shares on the XP Machine but i think i'm still missing something on the Fedora 10 Firewall... i don't know what it is yet...

someone mentioned to me something about SELinux?
