mounting linux folder on windows


i have one SuSe 9.1 box (10.0.0.2) and one Win XP box (10.0.0.3), and I wanna map /home/zaphyr/share on my win box. I can ping both boxes from each machine, and can browse my shared folders on the win box, via Network Browsing (smb) on SuSE. I allowed local net sharing on SuSe as well.

Now...when i try to map \\10.0.0.2\ from my win box, it tells me that it does not exist! what am i doing wrong? i did this on my mdk box before i changed to suse, with no problems...

please help!!

Is mapping \\10.0.0.2\ enough? I thought that you ned at least provide a samba-share-name, like \\10.0.0.2\public or whatever your share in samba is called.

well, when mapping \\10.0.0.2\share i get the following error in windows:

"The mapped network drive could not be created because the following error has occurred:
The specified server cannot perform the requested operation."

I love windows error msgs!

Perhaps you can post your smb.conf file. Did you try to connect to your share using smbclient on your linux box?

starting samba is allways a good idea when trying to connect to smb service on linux!
