problem linux windows network
I;m trying to connect a linux box to a windows 98.
I;m sure i have hosts routes resolv and all things ok.
when i ping the other box it doesn;t respond .
When i;m ruuning ethereal it seems that the two boxes are talking to each other, the win box sends some smb , netbios and ipx protocols packets .
I have not configured samba ,is it nessesary to have it configured if i don;t want to do file sharing??
The boxes don;t respond to eachother what is wrong .
MY route table
192.168.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
127.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
