I finally found a tutorial that actually worked. I am able to get the computers to see each other. But when I try and access Windows from Linux it asks for a user name and password. When I try and access Linux from Windows, it shows up in the network, but if I try and access it I get an error saying that //LINUXBOX (what I named it) does not exist, yet it still shows up as being in my network.
I'm not sure which ports samba uses, so I don't know what to open.
Both computers are in the same workgroup.
I've never pinged anything before, but if I try and ping the IP of my Windows machine, nothing seems to happen at all.
I don't know how to tell what my IP or subnet and that kind of thing is from Linux (I'm kind of a newbie), so I don't know about that. I am fairly certain that they are though.
Here's my smb.conf:
# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from 127.0.0.1 (127.0.0.1)
# Date: 2008/04/03 17:37:59
netbios name = LINUXBOX
guest account = pcguest
os level = 2
preferred master = No
local master = No
domain master = No
hosts allow = 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0
path = /home/darkjirachi/share
read only = No
guest ok = Yes
available = Yes
File sharing is enabled, but again I don't know what ports to open in the firewall.
I am using openSUSE 10.3.
I can ping the Linux machine from Windows and get a response, but I cannot access it from the network.
