    Shows workgroup, cant go further


    So by disabling my firewall and enabling some network protocols and shares I randomly got my network kind of working. I wonder how. So it now shows my workgroup but it wont let me any further to see the windows machine. + the windows machine cant see the linux machine. I have samba client and server installed on the linux machine. Any other steps to take?

    more details?
    1) is windows' firewall disabled as well?
    2) what is your windows' workgroup? is it the same as samba?
    3) mind to share with us your smb.conf?

    Yes the workgroup is the same. I think what I am seeing here in my netowrk is just the local computer.

    it says

    (with pryjon being my workgroup and it is all uppercase in windows and linux)

    Pryjon (Samba 3.0.7 - 5 SUSE)

    smb.conf (for redhat family) is found int /etc/smb/smb.conf (or /etc/samba , cant remember it atm, not with my linux box :P )
