    Samba.conf


    i set up my samba.conf to work on DHCP sucessfully but i have recently decided to change from DCHP to static IP on my network and my samba config doesn't seem to work.

    I am not using domains, i am using workgroups, the linux machine can successfully connect to the internet through internet connection sharing provided by a windows machine on the network but can not view any other computers on the network as it asks for a domain controller

    can any one help

    Code:
    # Global Parameters
    
       Workgroup = starwars
       Netbios name = samba
       Encrypt Passwords = yes
    
    [MP3]
       path = /Data/MP3
       browseable = yes
       write list = administrator
    The code is very simple and i would like to keep it that, i would like to avoid setting up a domain as i see that would slow down my network even more as it only running at 10Mbps

    Do you get an error trying to view the samba shares from a windows machine or the windows shares from your linux machine? Or both?

    Viewing Machines on the network

    i get an error when using XSMbrowser saying unable to find domain master controller.

    When i try an look for the linux machine using network places on my win machines the Lnx boxes are not there full stop, but when i try an ping the machine ip address from the win machine it finds the address.

    So as far a i can see there is an error within my samba.conf, and this is why i have asked for some help sorting it

    The smb.conf file is that all you have in yours? Are you sure the linux machine is on the same network as the windows machines? Are they all in the same workgroup? Does the smb daemon start ok?

    This is my smb.conf it might help->
    [global]
    workgroup = ELSEN
    log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
    invalid users = root
    socket options = TCP_NODELAY
    obey pam restrictions = yes

    [olman]
    comment = Olman's Shares
    path = /olman
    valid users = olman
    public = no
    writable = yes
    printable = no

    FORGOT: What distro are you using? And do you have any firewalls?
