Re: SAMBA configuration - Machine name

I've read all the help available on SAMBA available from GNOME.

I've got an MSDOS (6.0) machine with MSCLIENT over TCP/IP running
on it, and a Fedora Core 2 machine, using static IP addresses.
Each machine can successfully ping the other. But when I try
to establish a share connection from the MSDOS machine to the
Linux machine, the MSDOS machine cannot find the Linux machine.

JMCCARTY AMD586 Q:\NET> net use * \\presario\tmp

Error 53: The computer name specified in the network path cannot
be located.

Not much of a Samba user, but when I stuggled through getting it working
I found Swat was helpful.  Some things only worked properly when
windbindd was running, check

service winbind status

# service winbind status
winbindd is stopped
# service winbind start
Starting Winbind services:                                 [  OK  ]

Ok, that may have been part of the problem. But so far no change.

Also make sure you poked some holes in your firewall

iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 137:139 -j ACCEPT
iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 445 -j ACCEPT

If it still didn't work I would fire up tcpdump and look to see if the
Linux box is broadcasting its existence and name.

Well, did that, and it still won't work. I run tcpdump on my Linux
box (I guess it would receive it's own broadcasts)

# tcpdump

I don't see anything in there that looks like this machine
broadcasting itself.

You have found the bank of Larn.
I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
