Hi, i have just joined the list and apologise if this has already been answered, i did have a look through the archive but without the search i didn't have any luck finding an answer.
I have a series of machines set up to dial up to my samba server. I connect to these machines every night using smbclient to download a series of files (transaction batches from a POS system).
So far everything has been working great but i have struck a problem with the last machine I set up. All these machines have there hard drives duped so there setup is identical, all that is changed is the machine name and ip address.
Basically I am getting the message that the machine is not listening on the name i have called it on. I fed it the ip address to make sure but...
# smbclient //prahranserver/c -I 192.168.1.208
Added interface ip=192.168.1.130 bcast=192.168.1.255 nmask=255.255.255.0
Session request failed (131,128) with myname=MAIL destname=PRAHRANSERVER
Not listening on called name
Try to connect to another name (instead of PRAHRANSERVER)
You may find the -I option useful for this
However if i use nmblookup i get a response.
# nmblookup prahranserver -B 192.168.1.208
Sending queries to 192.168.1.208
I can also connect quite happily from the prahranserver machine back to the samba box.
I have tried removing all the network settings on the windows box (prahranserver) and re-entering them but to no avail. The only thing i have yet to do is replace the box entirely.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
