Where are my samba shares?
am trying to make a connection with a windows-me computer from a linux system.

Some information :
The winME is client in a Lantastic network (lantastic has it own protocols)
It has one network card that is connected to a hub.

The same network card is used to connect (over the hub) to a router, that is acting as DHCP, and that is connected to a cable network. In this way I have an internet connection and can access the network and everybody on the network can use the cable-network.

For testing purposes I have made a map on the Winme machine, made it available, and have given it a password.
(The winme machine is called Colossus)

In the router table I can find the ip-adresses. The next one is obvious assigned.
4 00-C0-26-A0-0B-4D 05:04:36.040 Colossus

Then I try to look and see if my map is available and give the following command :

linuxMedusa:~ # smbclient -L colossus (does it care if I use Colossus or colossus?)

I get the next reply :

added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Got a positive name query response from ( )
timeout connecting to
Error connecting to (Operation already in progress)
Connection to colossus failed

The address is the address from the linux machine.
But why does it not show the shares that are available ?

Can anyone give me some hints? Thankyou in advance.

I found them, one computer had a firewall and blocked the connection.
