As per the topic I have been trying to samba mount a remote windows 98 pc.
I have problems.
Let me revise what configuration I have and what is working at the moment.
*PC no1 is running Linux red hat 9
*PC no2 is running win98
*PC running win98 can see and read/write to the samba exported filesystems on the linux box.
*PC running linux cannot mount an exported disk on the win98 box.
*PC running win98 shares the filesystem with other win98 boxes with no issues.
*PC running linux has encryption turned on (using gui)
*shared disk on the PC is drive d (full read / write)
The command used on the linux box is ==> mount -t smbfs //pc/d /mnt/windows
After I issue the commmand.. there is a pause where the linux box tries to mount..etc.
Eventually the linux box spits back an error (wish I had it.. but will try to remember some of it).
unable to mount.. blaa blaa.. IP-number. (which is the correct IP number of the pc running win98)
There is some step I am missing.. as I think this should be simple to fix. but at the moment I am stumped..
