I can ping my Windows computer from samba computer - running RH7.3. I can
ping the samba server from windows box - can ping only with IP addresses not
names. When I double click on the samba server in Network Neighborhood on
Windows box it asks for password to \\Hpomnibook\IPC$. That is the name of
the server. I cannot get farther than this. Have set up share as AllFiles -
just to get going. I log into Windows computer with same user name and
password as the Linux box - except when I login to Unix box as root. I am
running Lisa on the Linux box - does this matter? Any help to this lost in
Linux person appreciated.
