OK! I'm sorry about this. As I wrote earlier I'm totally lost... but I will
explain the problem in steps bellow, ok.
1. I installed the rpm's for samba, Version 2.0.2a-ssl I think this is the
distributed with redhat linux 7.0
2. Then I changed the parameters in the /etc/samba/smb.conf file,
and in this file I added the folowing parameters.
netbios name = STRIKE
workgroup = SKV (Domainname on my windows NT 4 domain samba is a
server string = Samba server
security = user
encrypt passwords = yes
socket options = IPTOS_LOWDELAY TCP_NODELAY
comment = Temporary
path = /tmp
read only = no
public = yes
3. Put the smbd and nmbd deamons up and running.
4. The computers didn't appear in network browser on my windows NT
5. I looked in the diagnosis.txt and I figured that maybe I can't ping the
by name so I tried to do that and it didn't work, so I edited the hosts
on my windows workstation and on the linux server, and when I did this
linux computer become present on the network browser but with the
6. I tried to connect to this computer and a error message stated that it is
conflict, there is already a computer with the name localhost on the
And this is not true, all other computers thats on my network are
names of who is the user of them. All the computers do have loopback
this are stated localhost, but they shouldn't be a problem because the
isn't a public address.
This is the steps I've maked, and it doesn't work, for some reason I don´t
think I have done anything that should be of any problem, but it does
acctually get wrong.
I hope this is more specific, what my problem is.
Mvh / Best regards
