samba issues
I'm using FC2, everything fully updated via redhat network. Right now I'm trying to share a folder to access on windows machines. (sony netMD walkman only works with windows dangit) using the graphical tools available from the Fedora menu, I seem to be able to share the folder and I can find my linux box in network neighborhood. when I click on it to then find the folder I'm trying to share, I get the following response: \\Localhost is not available: A duplicate name exists on the network.

I'm using a LInksis cable/dsl router which as far as I know is the only thing handling the DHCP/DNS/any other routing functions.

also, /etc/smb.conf is empty every time i look at this a fedora thing?

create a smb.conf make sure that samba is running.

here is a sample smb.conf

make sure to do a:

useradd guest

passwd guest (make it blank)


smbpasswd guest (make it blank)
