I have be trying to get my samba shares to be seen by windows, here below is my smb.conf. I am using swat to configure this. My samba shares do not show up on my windows machines. I have tried several combinations of configuration but do not know what else to do. Please could someone help?
# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from 127.0.0.1 (127.0.0.1)
# Date: 2007/06/22 22:35:48
The reason that the shares don't show up is usually because the firewall is blocking the necessary ports. Browsing SMB/CIFS shares requires that you open up a lot of your firewall, which is why it's usually disabled. For example:
So I tried all of this, when I did net view on the windows box I got : System error 53 has occurred, the network was not found,
I am using windows home edition version 2002 sp2. I removed the no on available, I still have no shares?
