    Samba not seen by windows

    I got a stable version of RedHat 9 installed on redhat 9 with samba installed. I go to my win2k pro machine and when I look in the network neighborhood I see the redhat machine Icon along with my other systems, but when I go to click on the redhat server it tells me that the network path is not found. does anybody have any Ideas.

    Do you have a firewall on your Win2k machine?

    No I don't think so I just installed win2k no firewall software on the system and my server does not see it either.

    hello.

    make sure you have some of this stuff in these files.

    /etc/samba/smb.conf
    Code:
    security = SHARE
    username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
    guest ok = yes
    /etc/samba/smbusers
    Code:
    root = admin john whatever
    nobody = guest anon etc
    the username mapping stuff needs to be there if you have security = SERVER (i think).

    make sure you setup your shares like

    /etc/samba/smb.conf
    Code:
    [testShare]
         path = /usr/net/share/images
         read only = yes
         public = yes
         create mask = 0555
    i don't think samba likes you sharing stuff out from /root. i'm not sure about normal users homes. i'd assume it would allow it.



    if all fails try either of these for more, though you should read both regardless.

    Code:
    [user@machine dir]$ man smb.conf
    [user@machine dir]$ man samba
    Hmm...theres something a little peculiar here. Oh i see what it is! the sentence is talking about itself! do you see that? what do you mean? sentences can\'t talk! No, but they REFER to things, and this one refers directly-unambigeously-unmistakably-to the very sentence which it is!
