samba: win95->linux works, linux->win95 doesnt

Post by Anthony Schroed » Fri, 06 Dec 1996 04:00:00

for some reason i can get my win95 box to see my linux samba server fine - no
problems at all.  but i can't get my linux server (the same one) to see my win95
box - really strange.  the linux server is slackware kernel 2.0.25 with the smb
compiled in, and i know this worked before, but it was kernel 2.0.24 i believe
last time it worked (it's been a while since i have tried it).  oh, and i had to
reinstall win95.

other win95 boxes see it fine also.

 Apparently 2.0.27 has a work-around for a Windows-95 bug as far as the
 smb fs goes. Grab patch-2.0.26.gz and patch-2.0.27.gz and recompile.

 Hope the above helps,

1. Q: Print problem: Win95 -> Linux/Samba -> Linux/Netatalk -> LaserWriter

I've collected more info on the problem I described earlier:

I've got a PC with Win95 running on it.

I've got a Linux machine running a pretty stock RedHat 5.1 installation.

The Linux machine is running Netatalk and Samba.  It's got printcap
entries for a bunch of Netatalk printers, as well as a direct-connect
Canon BJ-100 and a raw network HP DeskJet 1600CM.

Our UNIX machines can print to all of the Linux print queues with no
problem.  Looks beeeeautiful.

Our Win95 machines have problems:

Printing to the BJ-100 and the HP DeskJet 1600CM works great.  Test
pages are great, documents look great.

Printing to the Netatalk printers doesn't work great.  The test page
prints, but the printer then spits out a blank page followed by a page
with the following message on it:


ERROR: undefined



Any ideas?  I've tried a variety of drivers on the Win95 machines, but
haven't had any luck getting it to print without the blank pages and
error pages.



2. File size limit on Solaris 2.5.1 and pwrite

3. Printing PostScript: Win95 -> FreeBSD -> Samba -> GS -> HP LJIII

4. odd route behaviour

5. Win95/IPX -> IP ->PPP ->Linux ->Novell 3.12

6. TaskmasterPro card?

7. Extremely slow win95->ethernet->linux->(modem PPP) connection.

8. Looking for a Programmer!!!

9. WIN95>LINUX>WIN98>NT4Proxy?

10. win95->linux(gateway)->isdn->internet (ip-masq question?)

11. Win95->Linux->PPP->NT Domain?

12. FTP from Win95 --> UNIX --> Win95

13. Win95 <-> Linux ok | Linux <-> Internet ok | Win95 <-> Linux <-> Internet NOT ok!
