I recently started working with somba on my Slackware box, and got it going
with file sharing. However, I need a little more functionality out of it.
I'll start with my situation, and what I need to do.
I run a webserver on IIS 5.0 on a Win 2000 box. It is strictly a LAN
webserver and only accessable from thos on the inside. People access from
their browser via my Win 2000 computer name, ie - http://<w2k computer
name>. It all works real nice for the Windows computers on the network, but
for me on this Linux box, it doesn't work. It can't resolve http://<w2k
computer name> to the right IP and get me on the page. I'm assuming this is
because the Linux box lacks the ability to resolve host/computer names to
I worked with a guy for a while on this, but we really got nowhere. We
messed with win hook settings in smb.conf, and a script he wrote. I've left
it running a while, but still, no go. Are there some settings and
configurations I can tweak and work with in Samba to get this done? I would
really like to get it going. I hope I've been fairly clear in what is
needed, and you understand it.
I hope to hear back from someone soon, and will be glad to hear of some way
to get this functionality out of my Linux box.
