Win98 can not see Linux DHCP/Samba Server (WinNT/2000 can)

Post by Pedr » Wed, 13 Jun 2001 14:37:31



Hi All,

        I have a network of Win98, WinMe, WinNT, Win200 and Linux
computers.
        Win98 and WinMe can not see my Linux DHCP Server in the
Network Neighborhood which gave them the IP address in the first
place. The WinNT and Win2000 can see the Linux server and login to all
the shared Samba Files.
        I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong? Does anyone have an Idea on
what is wrong?
        I would appriciate any Info on this.

TNX
Pedro

You will need to ensure that you have loaded the Microsoft Windows File and
Print Sharing service onto your system.  Win2000/NT have this already loaded
into their system but Win98 and WinME actually require the service to be
loaded from the distribution disk.

Once you have loaded the service, you should be able to explore the Windows
network and be able to see all the other machines in the system.

See ya

you only have to enable this if you wan't
to see the win9x computer itself in the
networknh.
you should check if they have obtained
correct wins server entries.
