What I Did:
` Installed Samba from YaST
` Setup Samba Client and Server with Shares
` Install LISa from YaST
Lisa is a graphical interface for Samba but LISa doesnt work for me.. still have to get that going.
With after logging in as root into the console, I can read network shares by IP Address but not with the NetBIOS name.
smbclient -L Stripperella -U Arati
Gives me errors that it cant find Stripperella but
smbclient -L 192.168.0.114 -U Arati
shows me the shares on Stripperella and some wierd error. Using
smbmount -o username=Arati, password=
I can map the 'Kwap' folder on Stripperella to the '/network/Stripperella/Kwap' folder on the linux box. Wierd!
The Sorceress cant be seen on any windows machine.. I can ping it et al but i can't see it. Need to work on this some more..
There such little documentation on samba.. The samba site is confusing.. took a lot of searching and struggling to figure these small bits out. Lots of help is available for older windows versions. Havent found much help for working with Win XP/2l
