    File sharing between RH9 and 2000.

    Goodday!

    I have 2 PCs.
    1 is a Redhat 9 ,
    1 is a Window 2000.

    i noe sharing files is possible between this 2 using Samba.
    I tried googling but the steps but they are not detail enough!

    Does anyone noe of any link , which is more detail!
    Or is there anyone kind enough to drop me a Step by step thread!


    Thankyou!

    Hey Hey,

    It's late and I'm sick and lazy. I normally wouldn't reply, but since no one else has.. i'll throw something at you. First of all this isn't security, it should be in the OS forum. Anywas there are many good sites on using it. Since you have RedHat... how about one that's RedHat specific.

    After you do this in konqueror, smb://IPaddress.

    How about http://www.techtv.com/screensavers/l...458393,00.html
    As much as I bash TSS, for n00bs they are pretty good, that's quite the impressive walk-through.

    Anyways these were found with an easy google search, how much looking did you really do?

    Peace,

    You can also look for a program called SWAT which after you install samba, it will make configuration a little easier if you don't know how to work in the terminal.

    There is an RPM for it so just use Redhats apt-get (no that's Debian, but the rpm tool that redhat has) or just google for it.

    Okay I won't be lazy

    http://rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/redhat/...3a-6.i386.html

    After you install it, go to a web browser of your choice and type http://<ip-address>:3000

    For example http://192.168.1.100:300

    After that, everything else is pretty self explanitory. Ask more if you need more help

    Share a directory on the windows 2000 box. On the redhat box make a new directory under /mnt ie mkdir /mnt/win
    then use the command mount -t smbfs //windowsboxname/sharename /mnt/win on the redhat box
    You can now access the files in the shared directory under /mnt/win/

    Actually, I don't think that will work, unless the share has no security on it.

    RH9 will only send passwords plain text and W2K won't accept plain text passwords.

    I think Fedora works much better.

    Thanks. everyone!
    My WIN2000 can access the RH9 shares now.

    But there is one more problem.
    I tried to put my Root folder from RH9 to share .
    I used my win 2000 to access the folder ,
    i get a message " \\Localhost\root is not accessible. The netwoek name cannot be found"

    But the strange is that i can access RH9 CDROM folder from WINDOWS!

    i wonder if my Samba setting is set right!
    But my CDROM settings from Samba is exactly the same as ROOT settings.
    The Samba settings is displayed below.

    Base Options:
    path: /root

    Security Options:
    guest account :nobody
    read only:Yes
    guest ok: No

    Browse Options
    Browseble :Yes

    Miscellaneous Options
    Available: Yes
