Samba in RedHat8
I have a few machine running Redhat 8 in a windows2000 mainly enviroment.
My problem is that I can map a drive from my winodws machines to the linux boxes, but when I browse my network neiborhood in the windows2000 machines I get an error message saying "domainname.com is not available"
Here are my configurations to the samba configuration file.
workgroup = mydomain.com
server string = Samba Server
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
security = user
encrypt passwords = yes
smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
unix password sync = Yes
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
wins server = 192.168.1.50
comment = Home Directories
browseable = no
writable = yes
valid users = %S
create mode = 0664
directory mode = 0775
Thanks for any help
Do you have a firewall blocking the NMB ports (UDP ports 137 and 138)?
Solved the problem
I changed my (workgroup = mydomain.com) variable to the bios name of my domain, windows sets aliases for domains so I changed the workgroup variable to "PBG" which is the alias for that domain and it worked.
