Accessing Windows share from Red Hat 9 through Samba
 
I am using a Pentium 3 with 512 MB SDRam Operating System Red Hat Linux 9.0

I am trying to mount a share fom the windows 98 system.
I am using the smbclient program for the same. I am getting the following error:

My Linux System's IP address is 192.168.1.1
Windows98 system's IP address is 192.168.1.38

# smbclient -L 192.168.1.38

added interface ip=192.168.1.1 bcast=192.168.1.255
nmask=255.255.255.0
session request to 192.168.1.38 failed (Called name not present)
session request to 192 failed ( Called name not present)
session request to *SMBSERVER failed (Called name not present)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I was able to connect like this using the Red Hat 8.0 or previous one. But its giving problem in Red Hat 9.0

Please kindly suggest to overcome this problem.

Thank You.

I am no expert, but just a thought...

have you added your win98 IP to the hosts file.

if not type

#neat

and at you win98 ip to the hosts tab.

Also double check your windows machine is set up properly.
