I can not get my linux server to show up in my network neighborhood in windows98. I am using a LINKSYS cable router to network two pcs together. I know my network is working fine because I can connect from one windows pc to another but not to the linux box.
I think the problem has something to do with the router be a DHCP server. I don't think I am setting up some of the ip addresses or names correctly to allow the machines to talk to one another.
Has anyone had any experience connecting a linux and windows pc using LINKSYS DSL/CABLE ROUTER?? If so, maybe you could tell me what I may need to do.
Also, when I run "smbclient -L localhost" I get a connection refused and connection to local host failed after it says what addresses it has added.
Thanks for your help!
