    Share file from Linux to Windows

    Hi all
    I installed CentOS on my machine, and on my another machine I have Windows.
    From linux machine i can ping to windows and backwards..
    But when I want to enter to linux machine from Start->Run it gives me..
    Sometimes: You haven't permission
    and sometimes: Configuration information could not be read from domain controller.

    What is the basic steps to share files from linux to windows and from windows to linux??

    You can use Samba to share the files.

    I use SuSE, which use YaST to configure Samba almost automatically. I don't know centOS, so you will have to find the equivalent configuration program, or manually by following the instructions from the Samba documentation.

    On Windows you can just share the directories as normal, by right-clicking on them and selecting sharing.

    From Windows you can then access the Files on the linux machine as if it was another Windows machine - through network neighbourhood - or whatever - haven't had a Windows desktop for a long time...

    From Linux, you can use konqueror.
    Type smb:// followed by the ip address of your Windows machine, or the name if it is defined in /etc/hosts.
