    Lightbulb windows cannot access my samba server


    hi, i am pretty new to linux, i need to setup a linux server while the rest of the network is working on windows (xp), we are all setup on MDKGROUP, i searched google for countless hours on how to configure samba, but i didn't get it

    we have tried many settings for the smb.conf

    i am however not sure about xinetd i have read at many websites

    same thing with swat, i'm not certain

    i can see my samba server running on every computer under Network Neighboorhood, but i cannot log-in, as i do not have the 'rights'

    if you guys could point me out, it would be greatly appreciated, thanks

    Try webmin.
    It's free and has Samba configuration modules.

    Edit: also see this HOWTO, and the links in this thread

    hi, thanks, i've installed webmin, but i got a different problem now

    well i still cannot log onto my server from windows ..

    my DHCP doesn't want to 'start' for a reason i don't understand

    we're also trying to set a DNS server instead with BIND
