I'm just a beginner to Samba and hope that you may offer me some help.
I want to link together a Mac Titanium powerbook running OSX to a PC
running Win 2000.
I am under the impression you can do this by connecting them
physically via their ethernet ports. (client to client)
I am also under the impression that using "Option K" from the Mac
desktop allows you to type in a syntax (smb://.......) that will let
you see the PC's shared folders. The most frustrating part is that
both machines successfully 'ping' the other but whenever I type in
the syntax, I always get a 'sorry, no such address found.
Does this only work with OSX server or can it be done as a 'client to
client' (peer to peer) relationship?
CAN YOU HELP ME OUT?
