First, sorry for the english mistakes...
I have a small problem:
My configuration is described just below:
<- -> Internet
FreeBSD firewall nating <- DMZ -> FreeBSD server (some services + Samba)
<- local lan -> ... some workstations + server NT4.
smb.conf is the one below:
netbios name = COMPUTERNAME
workgroup = DOMAINNAME
password server = NTSERVERNAME
security = domain
encrypt password = yes
path = the_path_of_the_directory
guest ok = yes
For the moment, I just want this but, after I will append some services.
I've made the configuration of the passwords.
So: I can connect without give my password to the [net] service but it is
normal since I ve put guest ok...
My problem is:
One, samba does not show the netbios name in the Windows explorer but the IP
address of the computer.
Second, it does not appear in the domain, but I must search for it.
Third, samba does not appear online in the NT4 domain viewer. I can see my PDC,
the NT4/NT5 workstations but the samba appears like a NT4 computer not online...
What I can say is that I do not till apply the command : smbpasswd -j <domain> -
r <PDC> -U <NT administrator>
But, I append UNIX and SAMBA accounts for <NT administrator> but whitout thoses
Is it the reason of this or not ?
Does it make appear the correct name and show the computer on line after
applying this command ?
