Does Samba work across networks?
A simple question - Does samba work across networks?
My linux work computer (at a university) is running samba, and
my windows work computer can access the samba shares without problems.
However, if I try to access the linux/samba share from home, it does not work (it can find the linux computer if I type in the IP share name directly, ie
188.8.131.52\\sharename from the "map network drive" dialogue).
It just doesn't let me on. I have my home IP address allowed in the smb.conf file, although my connection is through a cable modem, so maybe
that is causing the failure somehow.
So, should I even expect this to work, or does samba only work within
a specific subnet?
Thanks for any help/advice anyone can provide!!
