Re: Connecting to a Win Computer with Samba

I am having the same problem.  I have shut off the IPTABLES process so I assume IPTABLES is not active.  I can setup printers on our Win2000 network from the FC3 box, so SAMBA is active.  What I want to accomplish is to access FC3 shares (directories) FROM a Win2000 client.  I -- ironically -- was able to do so with no difficulty when I used RH9.  Just when into Windows explorer, clicked on My Network Places, and saw the name of the RH9 box.  I can see the FC3 box, I just can access anything in it from Win2000.  If need be, I can use Putty but would like this to be much easier (as in, dragging / dropping files from Win2000 to FC3 and vice-versa).

Any help on this issue would be appreciated!

Do you have IPTABLES blocking the ports needed by smb?
