    Cannot Map to a Samba Share from PDA


    Hello,

    Problem: Cannot get my pda (HTC Mogul) to connect to a samba share.
    Behavior: Resco File Explorer (V7.03) keeps asking for a password when I try to map to a samba share.


    Basic Setup Information:
    ROUTER: Dynamic Type Configuration acting as a DHCP Server. The DNS is Automagic from the IP.
    LAPTOP (windows xp): 192.168.1.38 / 255.255.255.0
    SAMBA_PC (Suse 11) : 192.168.1.36 / 255.255.255.0
    PDA (Sprint Mogul, Windows Mobile 6 Pro): 192.168.1.37 / 255.255.255.0

    -----Below is my current smb.conf---------------
    # smb.conf is the main Samba configuration file. You find a full commented
    # version at /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/smb.conf.SUSE if the
    # samba-doc package is installed.

    -------------------------------------------

    Additional Questions:
    1) when in a linux console and you are pinging a IP, how to you stop the continuous pinging?
    2) how do you find the machine name on the PDA similar to how the LINUX-PD = 192.168.1.36?
    3) why is the wireless router name showing up when I ping?



    I am at a loss.
    I will be posting to a Resco forum as well.
    Any suggestions helping this newb would be great.

    Thank you for your time
