    Duplicate name exists on the network?


    Greetings,
    Trying to configure samba between two computers - one FC2 the other W2K Pro

    From a root terminal:
    smbclient //engagestaff/ -U Administrator password
    Domain=[ENGAGESTAFF] OS=[Windows 5.0] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]
    tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME
    From GNOME:
    You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "Windows Network: engagestaff"
    From the W2K Box:
    \\Localhost is not accessible
    A duplicate name exists on the network.
    From smb.conf
    [My_Documents]
    comment = MyDocs
    path = /home/user/My Documents
    public = yes
    browseable = yes
    guest ok = yes
    writeable = yes
    Anyone see anything?
    Cheers,
    Mike

    Use " smbclient //server/share ..."

    The share name is *required*

    Hmmm...

    Code:
    [root@localhost user]# smbclient //ENGAGESTAFF/Mike-Docs/ -U Administrator
    Password:
    Domain=[ENGAGESTAFF] OS=[Windows 5.0] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]
    tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME
    Code:
    [root@localhost user]# smbclient //MSHOME/ENGAGESTAFF/Mike-Docs/ -U Administrator
    Connection to MSHOME failed
    I'm so lost. How do I go about uninstalling samba, reinstalling it, and configuring it correctly?

    Cheers,
    Mike

    SWAT

    Figured how to uninstall / reinstall samba.

    Neither yum nor synaptic are able to find a SWAT package though for configuration... where can I get a copy of this? Will I need to make install it?

    Where is a good HOWTO listed on configuring a small network (1 W2K Pro box, 1 FC2 box) in samba?

    Thank you!
    Mike
