I'm really looking for an idiot's guide to samba.
At work we have a small winblow$ workgroup.. (I, the lone linux geek) so I'm trying to configure samba so I can see & be seen from linux on my lappy (#2 in the sig) slackware-11 of course
I know nothing about networking. I have been reading the official samba site's docs and getting somewhere (?)
$ ps -A | grep smbd
1736 ? 00:00:00 smbd
1745 ? 00:00:00 smbd
$ cat /etc/services /etc/inetd.conf | grep swat
swat 901/tcp # samba web configuration tool
swat stream tcp nowait.400 root /usr/sbin/swat swat
which seems correct...
then I open firefox and go to "http://localhost:901/" to try and configure samba but I keep getting unable to connect.
any help here? is there another way (besides samba) to 'join' the M$ club here?
i've tried searching LQ for samba stuff but seems everything is over my head..
