1. Accessing Samba From Behind a NATing Router
Folks: Have a Samba 2.0.x server (based on the NetMAX File Server
appliance distro) that works very well and I want to provide access to
the server from the outside world. The server sits behind a Linksys
cable modem router/firewall and I've explicitly forwarded ports 137-139
to my server's IP address (192.168.1.100), but I still can't access
the server. As I type this, I've just re-read 'Using Samba' and the only
thing I haven't looked into are the hosts allow/deny clauses of smb.conf,
since this file is normally controlled by the NetMAX appliance sware. Will
do so during my next client-site visit....
I also wrote a Python script that looks up the current (translated) IP
addr for my server (eg. from server.foobar.com) and writes a fresh LMHOSTS
file for its NETBIOS name on each telecommuting workstation. So NET USE
\\server\share shud work, but I get a 'computer or sharename could not be
found.' error message.
Perhaps there are other things I need to do in order to make this
work. Any suggestions ? TIA....Jet
