Local Network access problem

i have suse 9.3 installed and it works like a charm except i can't access the local network. could it be because the firewall is on? the connection settings are correct, because i can access the internet( i connect to the internet via LAN), but not the computers from the company. any ideas?

1) If dynamic IP, check your DHCP.

2) Make sure you can ping each other within LAN environment.

3) Check your subnet etc again.

Hope it helps.

i have had a similar problem, when I went to Local networking, then SMB Shares I get an error message

so go to YAST, security and users, then choose Firewall and stop it

everything should work fine then
