The virtualization is of no consequence here whatsoever. If you have bridged networking and the they are on the same subnet then they should be as reachable as any other IP enabled device. Don't confuse the issue by adding in things that don't matter. If you have routed networking and can not change that then you would need to add relevant routes onto the relevant boxes. You would really want to be using bridged networking though.

Yes it's possible - searching, trying it and asking questions about your Samba setup would be the way to go. You could start here. Best of luck

Same answer: The virtualization is of no consequence here whatsoever.

Q: Did you ever try that "ping"? Did it work?

Just because two hosts happen to have the same IP address range ... DOESN'T necessarily mean they can actually communicate with each other!

SUGGESTION:
* Used bridged networking (at least for starters)
* Verify that each of your physical hosts are on the same LAN, have the same address range, and can ping each other.
* Verify that each of your guest VM's have the same IP range as the physical hosts, and that each can "ping" the physical host.
* Once you're sure everything can talk to everything else (i.e. once you're sure you actually have connectivity) then (and only then) worry about Samba.
* There are plenty of "howto's" for troubleshooting connectivity issues; as well as for setting up and configuring Samba.

Good luck!

Dude, what was the point of that? Gentle nudges are one thing... Please don't
