Re: smb.conf file - Solved :)



I know I only recently posted the below message, but thought it good top
post the solution that I stumbled across.  I did another try in the
windows network neighbourhood and got a different message, about "No
service is operating at the destination network endpoint".  Did some
browsing on Technet and found this referred to a port issue.  So looked
at the firewall settings and saw they were set to high.  Put them down
to no firewall and the windows clients could then see the redhat
server.  Probably need to increase the settings and just let through the
port for smb?  Not too sure about that though.  Any other thoughts
appreciated, but at least I can get things going a bit more now.

Thanks again to all who contribute to the list.

Neil.
