Fwd: [Samba] Reh Hat ipchains tricks

Hi Raymond,

I also struggled 3 days to set up a direct connection between a RH7.3 box 
and a WinME box with a crossover cable for experiment and met with 
frustration.  The setup of WinME box has no problem and it can connect to 
other Win boxes for file sharing.

IP Address

Ping started connecting but both boxes can't see each another.  I also 
doubt maybe the problem coming from ipchain or firewall.

# /etc/rc.d/init.d/ipchains stop

did not solve my problem.

Could you please share me your experience how to test-reconfig  "ipchains"

Thanks in advance.

Stephen Liu
