I am not able to ping my Linux machine from W98SE but the
smbclient -L turnbui
command does communicate and return the names of the shared drives/folders
on the Windows machine - ?? proving 2 way communication is OK!!??
I have examined the documentation on the Linux firewall but don't understand
if this is causing my problem?-I don't know how to stop it either? can U
On each machine locally I can Ping that machine by its IP addr and name and
and can ping windows from Linux. It appears Linux is preventing the Ping
and even wierder is that sometimes during the Linux booting up if I attempt
a Ping one
of the attempts gets through up until the following Linux messaage during
its boot phase
- specifically just after pcmcia [I'm using eth0 10/100MB] is initialized
comes a message:-
'Reentering interrupt ISR'
and no more replies from Linux.
The Linux newsgroups can't help - unfortunately.
Also can anyone show me the best way to copy a file to windows from Linux
using the Konsole command-line, and should I just use copy+paste in Windows
Explorer. I tried to use xsmbrowser but this reports "can't find
hostname" - probably due to the above problem??
