SMB Sharing issues


i am having a hell of a time getting samba to work properly. i am running fedora core 2, i have a windows 2000 sbs machine, and my ibook running panther. i cant seem to get into or out of the fedora box. i know the network is fine cause i can get in and out of my windows to mac and vise versa. Some please help.

Jason

What happens when you try to get into the Linux machine? How are you trying to access the machine? What error messages do you get? Workgroup or domain? Firewall turned on or off?

did you create the samba users on the nix box yet? remember this isn't the same as doing a useradd in shell to create a local nix user

Locate your /etc/samba/smb.conf and open it, it is not hard to understand how it works by following the examples in this file.
