Trying to get SAMBA to work...netbios name =?
I am trying to get Samba to work. I am running RH 9.0 and my other systems are win2k boxes. I've been following some how-to's step by step. One of the lines I added to my smb.conf file is:
netbios name = example-server
or something like that. Well it actually worked when I ran
it has some issues still but atleast now I can see the exmple-server from my windows machine. But my question is this, on my windows machine I see the computer name as "example-server"
But my hostname as set by the command hostname is RH9. So why isn't the computer seen as RH9...
Also becuase I am running KDE, when I go to my "network configuration" option, there area number of tabs that I can mess with. Does that hostname command control the same thing that I see in this "network configuration" screen"? And also why does the newbios name = line in the smb.conf override everything?
