each of the services runs as a different user, I think; that's about where my knowledge ends on this

I don't think you'd want them running as root - if something was malformed and caused a service to break, you don't want the result running rampant as root (this is what many of the security advisories are about).

but they do all run concurrently, and you don't have to be logged in as root to make them happen.

I found that my Linux system is using the IP, while was used by my WindowXP system.
The 2 machines may not see each other since they are not on the same class C subnet. This can be due to the typical default subnet mask;

If that is the case, you may want to try to make your Linux box participate in the same sub-net as your WinXP box.

e.g. change the IP address of your Linux box to be (note the "1" rather than the zero in the third position of the IP address).

Hi Neils,
I changed the IP address using "netconfig" but still, it does not help. Any idea?
