i can't resolve names on the network
i can't resolve names on the network , and just i can use ip adress...
so i make linux as wins server by remove (;) at the begin of "wins support = yes" in smb.conf
but without result.... then i use the HOSTS file for name resolution in both linux and windows and evry thing doing well but thet not good solution because i have more than 20 machines...
is there any other good solution
# This is the main Samba configuration file.
workgroup = workgroup
netbios name = khaled
server string = samba
hosts allow = 192.168.0.
printcap name = /etc/printcap
load printers = yes
cups options = raw
; guest account = pcguest
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 50
; name resolve order = wins lmhosts bcast
; wins support = yes
; wins server = 192.168.0.100
; wins proxy = yes
dns proxy = no

encrypt passwords = no
winbind use default domain = no
Re: i can't resolve names on the network
Are these 20 machines getting their IP by DHCP or static addresses? If it's static, it's a bit of a pain, but the HOSTS file will work, if it's DHCP, it wont necesarily work. Either way, you could try setting up bind, that should be able to do that for you. (iirc)
