About the windows that arent mentioned:
There are some that resided from the past, and some still in use because off the need to use of some apps that are not yet fully implemented, and are used for jobs in windows-only environments (which are regretfully still around, on this here planet)
1)Acer Aspire 1711SMI PIV 2.8GHz:XPSP2 (Eldest son's laptop, who has to use labview for his mechatronics-study)
2)Toshiba Tecra 8200 (wifes Laptop, schoolteacher, windows only-environment):XPSP1
3)Compaq Armada E500 PIII 900: W2k/Debian-Sarge 3.1(youngest son's laptop: Highschooll begins integrating Linux, (Hurrah!))
4)Toshiba Satellite 2550CDT 366 Celeron-Mendecino: Debian-Sarge 3.1/DSL-Frugal (my speedy pride(!)with a superb soundcard.)
5)IBM PIV 1.8GHz: XPSP1/Kanotix 3.9 (Network-Server/Distro-Tester)
6)AMD64 Athlon 2800+ (1804MHz)Asus K8V-X: XPSP1/SuSE10.0 x68_64 (My PC)
4 laptops, 2 pc's.
There are 3 Workgroups: MSHOME, Home and TUX-NET.
Router: Level-One LAN/WLAN, Thomson Speedtouch 510,ADSL-Modem.
All Netbios names are unique, and are recognised, DHCP autoconfigures all, but SuSE...
All of them can be reached by one another, except SuSE, which cannot be accessed, and despite off all changes in order to get connected, cannot access any of the others.
All directories are visible, but none of them is accessable.
When i want to acces, a loginname and password is asked, and no password will ever grant access to none off the visible directories.
And I myself added the users and passwords..(which is not my choice, because in my router i can set-up who is able to get acces. But without setting passwords, it does not work either!) It simply does not work!
(I AM SURE THIS IS A BUG, AND NOT SOMETHING OF MY DOINGS! AND THE REASON FOR ME TO MAKE A PETITION, TO FORCE THE DEBUG, CAPICE?)
That is the problem!
Debian-Sarge--Debian-Sarge: Perfect connection.
Debian-Sarge (linneighborhood) windows: Perfect connection.
Windows-Windows: Perfect connection.
I am not using windows anymore since about six months, so it is terribly annoying not to have access to my own network.
IT MAKES ME FEEL AN ISOLATED PRISONER IN MY OWN HOME!
The network printer is on the IBM, and cannot be accessed, the scanner is on the IBM, and cannot be accessed, Various MP3's and Movies on my networkdrive, which is USB 2.0 and on IBM, is not accessable..
This shit is narrowing down my possibilities enormously, as you can understand...
I have to use various tricks to do the most simple jobs, which takes a lot of time, but is most off all very annoying, as you might understand...
But I am still alive, so one way or another, some day, this problem, will belong to the past......
