I have 2 machines ( running Linux Red Hat 8.0 and Windows Xp individually),
which share a broadband Internet connection through a router.
After installing Samba 2.2.7.a on Linux machine, I can use "smbclient" to
access Windows machines, see the files and transfer files.
But from Windows machine, I can only see the Linux machine under "My Network
Place" --> MSHOME (workgroup). After I double click the icon, it reported:
"\\Winny is not accessable. ...
No service is operating at the destination network endpoint on the
Under Windows machine,
1. I can ping the Linux machine using either IP or machine name.
2. Using "net view" command, the Linux machine appears on the list.
I suspect that there is someting wrong with authenicating Windows user on
Linux machine. But I don't know how to diagnostic this problem.
Could you give me any suggestion?
