cant connect to smb shares
Need a little help connecting to my windows shares, I did a couple searches, but couldn't find any straight answers.
Here's how my simple network is set up:
Internet--->[DSL Modem]--->[DLink Ethernet Broadband Router]
_____________________________Slackware Box___Windows Box
Hopefully my little diagram doesn't mess up. Basically there's a windows box named skywalker on the same subnet as my slackware box (godzillax).
Skywalker has a windows share called "donkey"
Using ping godzillax is unable to ping skywalker, but it can ping 192.168.0.101. Likewise, skywalker is unable to ping godzillax, but it can ping 192.168.0.100.
When I run:
# smbclient //192.168.0.101/donkey
i get the error:
added interface ip=192.168.0.100 bcast=192.168.0.255 nmask=255.255.255.0
timeout connecting to 192.168.0.101:139
Error connecting to 192.168.0.101 (Operation already in progress)
Connection to 192.168.0.101 failed
So I'd like to be able to communicate by machine names first of all. If I'm not mistaken, that's netBIOS that does that correct? Does samba take care of netbios? I have smbd and nmbd processes running.
Thanks for your help!
