Re: Windows Network

I am still trying to configure properly to have this "network" working.
Now I can see the other machines on the network !
When I try to connect on one (for example belonging to the same workgroup),
I get: Sorry, couldn't display all the contents of "Windows Network: bernath" and any machine shows up.
Concerning samba, I have: workgroup bernath
Security Authentication Mode User
Authentification Server: *
No Guest Account
Encrypt Password yes

Concerning the firewall, I enable mail, ssh, samba
I did not notice any difference if the SELinux Setting is enforced or disabled.

What else should I check ?

In the workgroup bernath there is several machines which are visible
from a XP machine.

Try connecting to one of the machines by IP address. Do this:

Places>Connect to Server> When the dialog box pops up change the service type to Windows Share and on the line below that where it says server , enter the IP address of the XP box. Then hit connect. When prompted for login credentials, you must use a user name and password that have an account on the local machine you are connecting to.

This works, as well as
smbclient -L // -I That way I need the ip address.

By the way, something seems wrong with my linux machine.
If I do ping homere (or homere.  and the name of the network) it does
not work from the Linux, but works very well from a XP machine !!!
homere is a XP machine.
There are plenty of weird behavior like this one.
Ping Teucidide.nxxxx  (my linux machine) works fine.
However, I cannot make Teucidide receive email from outside either !
I am using a dhcp.

I am missing something !
