Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

am trying to make a connection with a windows-me computer from a linux system.
Some information :
The winME is client in a Lantastic network (lantastic has it own protocols)
It has one network card that is connected to a hub.
The same network card is used to connect (over the hub) to a router, that is acting as DHCP, and that is connected to a cable network. In this way I have an internet connection and can access the network and everybody on the network can use the cable-network.
For testing purposes I have made a map on the Winme machine, made it available, and have given it a password.
(The winme machine is called Colossus)
In the router table I can find the ip-adresses. The next one is obvious assigned.
4 220.127.116.11 00-C0-26-A0-0B-4D 05:04:36.040 Colossus
Then I try to look and see if my map is available and give the following command :
linuxMedusa:~ # smbclient -L colossus (does it care if I use Colossus or colossus?)
I get the next reply :
added interface ip=18.104.22.168 bcast=22.214.171.124 nmask=255.255.255.0
Got a positive name query response from 126.96.36.199 ( 188.8.131.52 )
timeout connecting to 184.108.40.206:139
Error connecting to 220.127.116.11 (Operation already in progress)
Connection to colossus failed
The 18.104.22.168 address is the address from the linux machine.
But why does it not show the shares that are available ?
Can anyone give me some hints? Thankyou in advance.
