How good are you at Samba?

Post by Tony Kin » Fri, 27 Dec 2002 14:30:43



I've been having some problems accessing email from my Windows machines
through the proxy server on my Mandrake 9.0 system.  I have corrected this
by going into the "Mandrake Control Center" and stepping through the
"Internet Connection Sharing"   This enabled the server to also act as a
DHCP and DNS for the rest of the network.

I am psyched now that I can access my email, but now I cannot access my Home
Directories, nor can I logon to the DOMAIN.

If I go back into the "Internet Connection Sharing" and DISABLE it, then
SQUID takes over and I cannot figure out how to configure my Outlook Express
on my Windows machines.  The positive side to this is, I can access my "Home
Directories" and shared directories on the server.

In Windows 2K, the ipconfig /all command displays this...

[f'up to alt.os.linux.mandrake because it appears to be a MDK spec.
issue]

First: with crossposting to 5 groups you won't make many friends!

Let's say, here shorewall takes over and tries to secure your internet
connection as a main feature. By default it's now blocking your
netbios ports. Take a look at "man iptables" and "man shorewall",
maybe visit www.netfilter.org also.
In a short term, you can enable ports 137-139 for your local net but
here you should use good old commandline :-).

Good Luck!

does it mean anything that your lease (on the ip address) is expired????
I know its only a pretend IP address but the machine may not know that
then again it may mean nothing.

The information about he lease was copied a couple days before I posted
this.  I found the problem is in the IPTABLES.  A friend told me about it
and I investigated.  I have everything working now.

Thanks anyway,
Tony

1. Am I a good candidate for Linux?

Netscape Communicator (free)

Take your pick, among which are StarOffice, http://www.stardivision.com
and ApplixWare, http://www.applix.com/appware/index.htm, some of which
are free for personal use.

Communicator, but there are probably other tools (I don't do much web
development). Cold Fusion (http://www.allaire.com), etc. will be
available
in the future.

GIMP, the GNU Image Manipulation Program (free)

Any comments from those who run Quake on Linux?

Regards,
Ed
