I've searched thru this list and saw other mentions of this, but no real
solid responses on how to fix it.
I've got a linux box (red hat 7.2) running Samba 2.2.5. I've got 2 NICs
in the server, 1 to my internal network, and 1 to a PIX firewall/VPN
that connects to an office across the state. The Linux box is the only
thing plugged into that PIX. (I've verified everything works with both
of the PIX by hooking up a win98 machine, setting the WINS server and
browsing the shared folder.)
I'm trying to mount a share on the other end of that VPN (PIX)
Here is the error that I am getting:
/usr/local/samba/bin/smbclient //servername/sharename -s /etc/smb.conf
added interface ip=192.168.0.208 bcast=192.168.0.255 nmask=255.255.255.0
added interface ip=192.168.10.122 bcast=192.168.10.255
wins_srv_died(): WINS server 10.10.10.1 appears to be down.
Connection to servername failed
The 2nd IP (192.168.10.122) is the NIC that is attached to the PIX that
has the shared folder.
I have the smb.conf setup pretty much standard, with the name resolve
order starting with wins and a wins server = setup to the wins server on
the other end of the PIX.
- I verified the WINS server is running, do I need to set a WINS server
value in my ifcfg-eth1 file?
- Is there another networking file I need to set a WINS server in?
- How can I make this work?
