I've just upgrade my home LAN from wired to a wireless router and am having difficulties getting samba to work properly between the linux server and my xp laptop.
With my former (wired) configuration (see below) everything worked fine: both could access the internet, there was full read write from the laptop _to_ the desktop, and full read from the desktop to the laptop. The desktop was / is serving as the samba server.
Cable Modem ---- (eth0) Linux desktop (eth1) -- switch --- XP laptop
My new configuration is as follows:
Cable Modem --- wireless router --- (eth0) desktop (eth1)
(pmcia card) laptop
I've assigned the router ip 192.168.10.110 and it serves dhcp addresses to both the desktop and laptop. Internet access is fine from either, but I am not able to get samba to work, although the laptop (xp) _sees_ the desktop (samba server) in it's neighborhood. When I try to access it, I get an error about the server (Grommit) not being recognized.
Can someone help me iron out the few wrinkles that I have?
I'm willing to post the relevant smb.conf, iptables and other files as needed, but thought that I'd describe the problem before posting those conf files.
Many thanks in advance
