hi Volcano,

you should search for samba threads in this forum, because this is maybe the thing you want.
there are also some how-to's on :

for myself, i have used samba just once in my linux-live, because of the lack of a second computer . so i am not an expert. but its not so hard to setup.

instead of samba, you could also use ssh/scp/sftp for sharing files between your machines.

hi i have installed samba . but there is no GUI nterface so that i could share my directory for the windows user . my system is red hat 9.

here are some information from my machine
# /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb   start Samba
Starting SMB services:                                     [  OK  ]
Starting NMB services:                                     [  OK  ]

/etc/rc.d/init.d/smb   stop Samba
Shutting down SMB services:                                [  OK  ]
Shutting down NMB services:                                [  OK  ]
smbclient -L localhost
added interface ip=x.x.x.x bcast=y.y.y.y nmask=
# /usr/local/samba/sbin/swat
bash: /usr/local/samba/sbin/swat: No such file or directory
 rpm -q samba-swat
package samba-swat is not installed
# rpm -q samba
is my samba installed ? i am not getting GUI interface. is it because of SWAT is not installed ? how do install SWAT now ? i need the GUI for sharing files and manage everything.

pleae tell me whatsto do now ?


thank you
