Could someone please tell me how to configure for this case.
After going through all types of documentation, I think my case is
either too simple or impossible that's why it's nowhere mentioned.
I would appreciate very much if someone could point me to the right
I have two laptops one running Linux and is a Samba server. One is
running Windows 98 and is configured successfully to use shared direc-
tories of the Samba server. That is when both laptops are connected
to the LAN and I logged on the Windows machine thru a NT domain controller
(or server, whatever, I don't know much about Windows world). Now,
I sometimes go on travel and needs to have the same file access
capability between the two laptops thru Samba. The laptops will be
linked by ethernet cards thru a mini-hub. But when I try to map the
drives on the Windows laptop, I got the message which says I must firt
logon. My questions are:
- Can I avoid loggin on?
- How do I get the Samba server to be also a logon server, since it
also store the passwords.
- What is the right way to do it if my above questions are not valid?
Thank you ahead VM,
