am wanting to set up samba so that it only listens on the VMWare interface.
I set interfaces as below,
interfaces = 192.168.178.1/24
but I still don't see my share from XP. I for a username/password. Do I need
to create the account on the XP machine on the Linux machine?
comment = Public Stuff
path = /home/marks
public = yes
writable = yes
I turned off the firestarter firewall to eliminate it as the issue.
path on XP is \\192.168.178.1 in an Explorer window. No firewall enabled on
XP machine. Linux distro where the share is, is Ubuntu (Feisty). I can ping
the VMware host from the guest XP, so connectivity is fine. Anyone here who
can steer me in the right direction? Cheers.
