Networking with Windoze
ok heres the scoop, I have 3 pcs I want to network 2 windows (xp and 98) and also my Suse 9.1 pro. I also run off a router.
The Suse sees the xp machine but not the other way around.
Where is the best place to start? With the router or the machines themselves.
have you setup the samba server in yast on the SuSE machine? I would start there if you not already done it. Also setup the samba client if you haven't already, also in YaST. (under the Network Services) tab.
using /etc/smb.conf (or SWAT? (http://127.0.0.1:901) don't use both. most irritating, is whether or not the samba machine is to function in a workgroup, or function as an NT log-on server (then, passwords need to be set on win 9x machine to be sent in the clear for authentication) i searched +linux +windows +samba and found an excellent how to, but no matter what help you find, the Win '9x box will try to cause some problems. the router doesn't care what it's passing.
