    can't ping my network


    I used to share my internet connection with my daughters computer (winnt4.0) when I was running Mandriva 2006. Now that I'm running OpenSUSE 10.1. We can't find each other or even a workgroup on the network( both our computers conneted thru a switch). Could somebody please help us? Is it the tcp/ip configuration on my SUSE box?

    too many factors..... is your SUSE's firewall running? are both IP in the same subnet mask? workgroup, is your samba running properly?

  3. #3
    the firewall is not running. the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0 for both ip addresses. the workgroup is tux-net. as far as samba runnig properly:
