I guess you are new at this.
Look into the Redhat firewall first.
I don't know what your security needs are right now. If the REDHAT machine
is not facing the internet or whatever,
try ipchains -L -n | less
to see if that will show your rules.
If it does, ipchains -F might flush them all, letting you connect to it on
netbios-ns 137/tcp # NETBIOS Name Service
netbios-dgm 138/tcp # NETBIOS Datagram Service
netbios-ssn 139/tcp # NETBIOS session service
If this doesn't get anything done, make sure the daemons are running on the
ps ax | grep mbd
assuming that RedHat isn't using xinetd to run samba.
In that case,
netstat -anp | grep 139 might show xinetd listening.
If this command fails, drop the "p".
