Samba: Gentus Linux / Win98

Samba: Gentus Linux / Win98

Post by Lee Goddar » Wed, 13 Sep 2000 04:19:56

Is it possible to link Gentus Linux to Win98
over LPT1?  I've tried with no joy, and really
want to get away from Windows, but need the
reassurance of testing Linux on my old box,
with access to my current files.

Should I just buy a CDR....?

Thanks in anticipation,

1. SAMBA - Win98 Machines and ICS through Win98 ok - no Windows network in linux

I've looked throught the messages and tried most - bottom line is that the
Linux machine keeps coming up with the message invalid user name or
password. I've got the same user name installed on the Win98 machine and the
linux machine. I have case set to insensitive. I set the registry in Win98
to enable plain text and the corresponding entry in the smb.conf file
(encrypted password=no). I added the statement nullpassword=yes to the
smb.conf file.

What do you have to do to see the windows machines??? BTW the linux machine
has no trouble using the Win98 ICS; dials on demand and all that; so the
network is working fine other than no ability to see the Windows 98
computers other than the windows drives on the dual boot machine I'm using.
