Setting up my netbios name in Samba
I'm trying to set up a samba server on my machine that will be accessible to everyone at my school. I've managed to get it so that people can connect to my share by specifying my IP address, but not by my netbios name (thepenguin). How can I broadcast this name so that people can just type that?
Here's the global section of my /etc/samba/smb.conf file:
[global] workgroup = WESLEYAN server string = Slackware Linux security = share hosts allow = 10. 127. 129.133. load printers = no log file = /var/log/samba.log max log size = 3000 SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192 socket options = TCP_NODELAY dns proxy = no netbios name = thepenguin
EDIT: I just realized that I should have posted this in the Servers forum. Oops. You can move it if you'd like, Mods.Situations arise because of the weather,

The obvious: did you restart samba after changing that setting in your config?"Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."
