    Samba Server

    I want to easily transfer files from the windows machines to my RH 7.2 boot machine.

    My sytem is setup like this. I have a Netgear RT 311 router, Netgear Fast switch and a cable modem. All the machines have static IP's

    I have successfuly set up full file and printer sharing to all the windows computers. The HP lAser is connected to the win 98 machine but can be used on all the other windows machine which happe to be XP.

    On one of the XP machines I dula bott RH 7.2 When I am in linux I want to be able to access its files and folders through Network Neighborhood on my win 98 machine. Win 98 Is my main machine

    Also I want to be able to acces the Win 98 and XP macine when I am in RH 7.2 as well as use the printer

    Is Samba the only way I can to this. I read and looks hard to setup. I found some RPMS for it. http://rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/redhat...1a-4.i386.html - do thes look like the ones I need

    Any help is appreciate

    Grab the latest issue of Linux magazine. They have a whole article on setting up a Samba Server. It's pretty good. Also, I believe the whole O'Reilley book "Using Samba" is posted online. Check that out. You may also want to look into LinNeighborhood, which is very easy to install and allows you to browse windows shares on your Linux box in the same fashion as program neighborhood.

    hello,
    you will also need a samba-server rpm for redhat.
    it is really pretty easy - infact when you install all that then you can do a fast /etc/init.d/smb start and the samba server will be running and you should be able to view generic stuff in network nieghborhood. *

    Re: Samba Server

    I just installed samba, samba-common and samba-client and samba-swat
    I have not edited the conf files though. Thats the tough part for me

    [root@localhost root]# service smb start
    Starting SMB services: [ OK ]
    Starting NMB services: [ OK ]
    [root@localhost root]#

    I can goto Network Neighborhod > Entire Network > MyGroup > LocalHost but at LocalHost it says
    Code:
    /LocalHost is not accessible
    No permission to access resource

    [root@localhost root]# smbclient -L //LocalHost
    added interface ip=192.168.0.40 bcast=192.168.0.255 nmask=255.255.255.0
    Password:
    session setup failed: ERRSRV - ERRbadpw (Bad password - name/password pair in a Tree Connect or Session Setup are invalid.)
    [root@localhost root]#


    I know, I know I have to edit the conf UGH

    I did a search for Linux Magazine and I only got hits to a place to order magazines, none of which were linuxmagazine

    I was going to go to the local stand

    Re: Samba Server

    Not that I have money these days either, but when I was broke and in Sr High/ College, I would go to the bookstore (Barnes and Nobles) and read and take notes on whatever I wanted. I had notes for all kinds of linux and programming stuff from there. Since B&N lets people do that, five hours a week there was perfect!! Try it out! Alot cheaper and easier than hoping the library picks up decent PC books.

    Re: Samba Server

    I just want to update

    Code:
    [root@localhost root]# cd /usr/bin
    [root@localhost bin]# smbpasswd -a root
    New SMB password:
    Retype new SMB password:
    [root@localhost bin]# service smb restart
    Shutting down SMB services:                [ OK ]
    Shutting down NMB services:                [ OK ]
    Starting SMB services:                   [ OK ]
    Starting NMB services:                   [ OK ]
    [root@localhost bin]#
    I also went into Win 98 and added a new user (first one actually) as root and gave it the same password at root on the linux computer and I still cant connect

    The reasom I just want to leave everything at root (or one user) is because I am the only user on all computers
