I am trying to setup tunneling samba over ssh. I followed all the steps on the
samba howto page. Then, things worked quite smoothly until I tried
"net view 127.0.0.1". I get "System Error 53 has occurred". Here's what I did:
I have linux server running samba 2.2.8a and windows XP as client machine.
@ In windows, disabled file and printer sharing and enabled LMHOSTS lookup.
@ In windows, created lmhosts with '127.0.0.1 fakename'
@ In widnows, ran ssh client with local forwarding. 139 localhost:139
@ In linux, I can telnet to 127.0.0.1 139
@ In windows, I can telnet to 127.0.0.1 139. If I run 'netstat -tn | grep 139'
from ssh client, I get something like:
$ netstat -tn | grep 139
tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:139 127.0.0.1:2708 ESTABLISHED
tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:2708 127.0.0.1:139 ESTABLISHED
@ If I run 'net view fakename' from cmd window I get:
System error 53 has occurred.
The network path was not found.
