    Basic Samba Setup


    I'm trying to set up a samba connection between my ubuntu linux machine and my xp machine. I have a printer on my ubuntu machine that I'm trying to share with the XP machine. I have samba up and working on my side but I ran into a brick wall when connection to the XP machine.

    this is the response I get from smbclient
    Code:
    aeuzent@demonbox:~$ smbclient -L Pavilion8785C -N
    Connection to Pavilion8785C failed
    aeuzent@demonbox:~$ smbclient -L Pavilion8785C -N
    Connection to Pavilion8785C failed
    aeuzent@demonbox:~$ smbclient -L PAVILION8785C -N
    Connection to PAVILION8785C failed
    aeuzent@demonbox:~$ smbclient -L pavilion8785c -N
    Connection to pavilion8785c failed
    aeuzent@demonbox:~$ smbclient -I 192.168.123.158 -L pavilion8785c -N
    Error connecting to 192.168.123.158 (No route to host)
    Connection to pavilion8785c failed

    By the way this machine is a dual boot with an XP os. The network connection works great through XP and I just want to be able to swap out the settings so that printer sharing works with the same settings no matter what OS I boot to.

    Well that was dumb of me. It ends in 153 not 158.

    So I'm a step closer
    Code:
    root@demonbox:/home/aeuzent # smbclient -I 192.168.123.153 -L pavilion8785c -N
    timeout connecting to 192.168.123.153:445
    timeout connecting to 192.168.123.153:139
    Error connecting to 192.168.123.153 (Operation already in progress)
    Connection to pavilion8785c failed
