can't see Win95 shares through Linux to Win95 network

can't see Win95 shares through Linux to Win95 network

Post by P.S.Heijne » Mon, 14 Jul 1997 04:00:00

At my work we have a small LAN with Win95 workstations and some unix
running SCU with Samba. We want to use a Linux machine as a dial-in server
remote employees runing Win95.

It is possible to dial into the Linux box and ping, telnet and ftp to all
the machines
on the local network (and from all the machines on the local network to the
on the other side of the ppp link). However, I'm only able to access the
Samba shares
on my Linux box and not -ANY- other on hte rest of the local network (I can
see the
computers if I put them in the c:\windows\hosts file on the remote machine,
but I
get an error like 'unable to find computer on the network' if I try to
browse it).

Does anyone know what's going on here?

Thanks alot,


1. getting win95 shares on win95 machines to map with a login script with samba and win95

This may be a win95 question
I have 2 win95 boxes logging into a samba "domain" and running login
I have the two machines both running login scripts and mapping drives
on the samba server no problem at all
but when u add shares that are on other win95 machines it always
prompts me for a password no matter how many times i log into them
it is driving me nuts
i have already deleted the password files on both 95 machines and
tryied it over it still prompts me for a password but only on the
win95 shares the ones on the samba server go thru no problem and no
if anyone knows how to do this it would be a great help
