I have installed samba and succeded to view my home network. The problem is that, the other pc's can not see me, even I can not see my self in that network. My workgroup name is catalogic. I am typing to any browser smb://catalogic and can see others.
I also edited the smb.conf file and changed the workgrop name but no way...can someone give me a trick about this problem.
p.s.: I also dont know my computer name :roll: how to find it
You have to give the user permission to gain access to linux from windows. On the linux box, type smbpasswd -a username. You'll then be prompted for a password.
For example, you have user ceviz on both lin and win, then type smbpassed -a ceviz. You should then be able to see your lin box from win.
