    Made the switch -need a little help

    Just recently started dual booting XP and Red Hat 7.3
    I have 3 machines running on a home lan all using XP
    They are connected using Linksys 4 port router.
    I am able to browse files on the XP machines using the Red HAt box , however I am not able to see files on the linux box using the XP Machines.
    Samba is running and I am able to see the linux box.
    I cannot get past the password error and see your network administor error.( not that it's an error)
    I have tried editing the smb.conf file but I am not too smart.
    Does this key mean comment " ; " (without the quotes)
    I have read quite a bit about the smb.conf file and it ???seems that it can be simplified. I only need file and printer sharing.

    btw has anyone on this forum run Medal of Honor on a linux box?

    Thnx

    Re:Made the switch -need a little help

    i think you may need to set a password for the XP users. try smbpasswd. man that up let us know if that helps :P. On a second note, nice post, clear concise and included all pertenant information.


    I haven't heard too much about it about here, but who knows, check out the games forum, and see :P


    Goodluck,

    Re:Made the switch -need a little help

    Sorry I don't understand what you mean!
    I found a file called smbpasswd in /usr/bin
    An exe that I don't know how to use.
    I find this all very frustrating tho a challenge. I've logged hours and hours already trying to overcome this one thing.
    I am confused with the whole lan setup.
    Seems easier in windows(xp or 98)

    Right now I am unable to use KDE interface to log onto windows machine. Says unable to find local host.
    With Nautilus I run SMB: at the location bar and it gives me the workgroup on the windoze machine.

    Understand I have zero linux knowledge,
    tho I know more today than I did yesterday

    thnx again

    An update:
    By typing in the computer name in Konquerer file/web browser at the "open location" menu
    I am able to get onto the select XP machine.
    I would of course prefer a "network neighbourhood browsing style.

    So now I have only to get XP to let me see files on the linux box.


    So bear in mind I have zero knowledge setting up config files in Linux

    Update2:
    Getting closer, I can add a network place in xp.It seems to wanna take when I type in the server name but gives this message: "windows requires a share to publish in. please try another location"

    Do you know where I should go from here?

    BTW smbpasswd doesn't exist in etc/samba/

    No such thing as an "exe" for linux - that's a winders thing

    Are you sure about that statement? I'm sure it might seem that way, but were you honestly able to do all that as a "winders newbie"?

    There are few similar things(linneighborhood, lisa, et al), but like 'network neighborhood' itself, they're kinda lame.

    Seeing your samba config file might be of some help.
    The file is located at: /etc/samba/smb.conf and can be read with any text editor(though it can only be edited by root). If you could copy/paste the contents here, we might have more of a clue as to what's going on.

    Re:Made the switch -need a little help

    Make sure your workgroup on the windows is games
    [quote; smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd]
    get rid of the ; in that line

    make sure you have a user on the windows machine e.g User1with a password of password

    then on the linux box type

    smbpasswd -a User

    then enter the password for that user (e.g password)
    enter again to confirm (e.g password)

    see how that helps.

    Also the ; means that that line will not be read.

    hosts allow = 192.168.1.1 192.168.2. 127.
    you can also comment out that line (with a ; at the start) - that is just for restricting samba to particular ip addresses.

    Frisky,

    Thnx for your help thus far.
    Editing the smb.conf file did not get results.
    I stil dont see a etc/samba/smbpasswd file!
    Should I?
    I read the BROWSING.txt that was confusing.
    Do I need to change WINS in XP?
    What is nmbd?

    Also I am not sure that I did the add user password thing right! Was I supposed to be prompted for a password and then the confirm?
    It gave me options and uses for the command.

    bear with me Frisky.

    Just so you know:
    I would like at this point to set up without passwords and anything else.
    The XP machines have no users.
    They are all administrator access.

    Getting the lan browsing to work would be great. I can always add to the smb.conf file later. I do not care about security at this point as I am dual booting and have nothing to hide or worry about.Router provides hardware firewall and I can add software fiewall later.
    Isn't a simple smb.conf possible.
    What about that LISA thing?
    should it be showing the network when you run it? Cause it don't!!

    Re:Made the switch -need a little help

    Hahaha u sound hell confused. Where to start. OK im no expert and its been a lil while since i looked at samba but ill try to answer a few things here.

    I read the BROWSING.txt that was confusing.
    Indeed lol.

    Do I need to change WINS in XP?
    No, I dont think so.

    Also I am not sure that I did the add user password thing right! Was I supposed to be prompted for a password and then the confirm?
    It gave me options and uses for the command.
    try it again - i think the first time i tried it it didnt workbecause the passwd file hadnt been created, and also i think when you do this right it adds a /etc/samba/smbpassword file - ill have to check up on this later.

    I would like at this point to set up without passwords and anything else.
    The XP machines have no users.
    They are all administrator access.
    you need a password to access the files on the linux box as far as i know - try adding a user called Administrator with the smbpasswd but leaving the password blank if you have no password on the XP box. Ill try to give an example.

    smbpasswd -a Administrator (Enter)
    (Enter)
    (Enter)
    should say some mesage that the password has been added.

    Well keep me informed ill try to help out and i might go check a few things out for u next time.

    Also i had some probs with samba and two subnets that we covered earlier , maybe have a read here and see if anything helps.
    http://www.getlinuxonline.com/yabbse...y;threadid=849

    Plus i've never used lisa.
    Also just a thourght - how about trying samba between just two machines to become a little more familiar with it instead of through a router. I dont think it should be any different(i could be wrong) but you could eliminate any network troubles.

    Well hope ure gettin there - Frisky
