currently I have Windows on my machine because I need it for school. And
because of my small hard disc (only 80 GB) I cannot install Linux.
I have a magazine about Linux with an introduction to Samba. That's why
I wanted to try out Samba.
I downloaded VirtualBox and installed Archlinux. Samba is installed and
I created a shared folder on Windows and on my Archlinux, but I could'nt
find them in the network. Neither with Windows nor with Linux.
I found out that my Archlinux is in another network than my "normal
clients". It is in 10.0.2.0 and my pcs are in 192.168.2.0.
With Arch can ping the Windows clients with their normal IP
(192.168.2.108, 192.168.2.106 etc.). But I cannot ping Arch on my
Windows clients (with the IP 10.0.2.15).
I also found out that I can access the router control with a browser in
Arch with 10.0.2.3 which is normally 192.168.2.1.
Is there any way to get in the same network so I can test/use Samba with
