Problem browsing in Win2k to RH 7.2 running samba

Problem browsing in Win2k to RH 7.2 running samba

Post by DKod » Fri, 05 Apr 2002 04:40:54

Here's the machine setup:
i am doing static IP's as i run services on the two main machines.
windows 2000
samba server
2 shares - public share(/home/apps/), and /home/username (depending on user
logging in)
caldera openlinux
DNS server working correctly on this machine

Here's the public share in my smb.conf file:
   path = /home/apps
   public = yes
   only guest = yes
   writable = yes
   printable = no

I was able to go to \\ and see the following:
dkode (user logged in)

Although I do have 1 strange problem on the network i am not able to

I am able to ping everything from the windows machine. But I cannot ping the
windows machine from the redhat or caldera machine.
I can do nslookups all the way around and it seems to be working fine. I
think it might be a subnet issue but I have all subnets set to
so I don't beleive that would be the problem?

Thank you in advance!


1. XP and Samba 2.2.1a on RH 7.2 not working...

Hi there all you freindly Samba-wizards! :-)

I have the problem that I can't access my Samba services from WinXP! However
though I CAN se the Samba server next to the other SM workgroup pc's - but
clicking the Samba Server only gives me a dialog-box saying something like
(it's in danish - so I translated it) : "No service operating at
networkendpoint on the remote system"

All tests made with smbclient etc.. are working on the Linux.

However I cannot make an:

c:\nbtstat -A       (thats on the client towards the server)

See my smb.conf below:

Best regards

#======================= Global Settings =============================#

# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name
   workgroup = SM

   server string = Samba Server

   hosts allow = 192.168.1. 127.

   security = user

# this tells Samba to use a separate log file for each machine
# that connects
   log file = /tmp/samba/%m.log
   log level = 2

   comment = Temporary file space
   path = /tmp
   read only = no
   public = yes

   comment = Jan's service
   path = /home/jan
