Running a vpn between the linuxes, could I "link" both private networks? I mean, if I have a windows machine behind each Linux could I see the other machine on my network neighbourhood? Again, I have set up the vpn and can ping from one linux to the other but dont know how to proceed.
Ive done this using the "remote announce" directive in samba. Just have the remote announce address on each machine set to the local cipe address of the other machine.
remote announce (G)
This option allows you to setup nmbd(8) to periodically announce
itself to arbitrary IP addresses with an arbitrary workgroup
This is useful if you want your Samba server to appear in a
remote workgroup for which the normal browse propagation rules
don't work. The remote workgroup can be anywhere that you can
send IP packets to.
