samba help


i setup samba to be able to share files via windows workgroups on my network; i can access the windows machines fine from the linux box, and the windows machines can see the linux box but it can't access files on it. the error says that //Localhost cannot be accessed because they are duplicate computers on the network

what can i do?

How many computers do you have on the network ?
Make sure that the computer names are all different.

You mentioned //Localhost, did you give your Linux a hostname ?
Edit the hostname line in /etc/sysconfig/network

In Samba, you can use netbios name = in the Global share to give the Samba server a different name.

i have probably 3 workgroups with 2-5 computers each and 2 domains with 2 computers, all windows.

i will try to change the hostname.

another question though:

how do you mnt a network drive. i tryed smbmount with the remote drive and /mnt/win as my mount point but i keep getting this error:

Could not resolve mount point /mnt/win

well i forgot to creat the /mnt/win folder so that is why it gave the first error but now i get this:

2718: Connection to DOMAIN failed
SMB connection failed

i can view and explore the drive perfectly through Konqueror though

any suggestions?
