    Linux and Windows Network


    I have a network with two Windows XP OS and one with Linux Fedora Core. The Linux can "see" the Windows computers but the Windows computers can not see the Linux machines. Any suggestions as to how to make the Windows machines "see" the Linux computer?

    What do you mean by "see"? Can the Windows machines ping the Linux machines? Maybe you need to install Samba servers on the Linux machines.

    you might need to ass your user to the samba group, modify /etc/host, or browse to copmuters via IP addresses

    do you have the netbios name set in the samba.conf file for your linux machine (I assume you are running a samba server).
