Hi Michael and everyone else!

Here is my latest attempt at an smb.conf file, set up almost exactly as in
this web page, and I have since added just a couple of things:
# Global parameters
workgroup = WORKGROUP
netbios name = BARRYCON
interfaces = eth0
hosts allow = 192.168.1. 192.168.2. 127.
security = share
printcap name = cups
disable spoolss = Yes
show add printer wizard = No
printing = cups
comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/samba
guest ok = Yes
printable = Yes
use client driver = Yes
browseable = No
I don't think I'm communicating at all between the Windows Vista system
and the Linux system.
I think I need to set up something in my Advanced portion of my D-Link
For example, I have a GadSpot DVR set up, with the two ports mapped. For
example, one port is 8080, so I have:
192.168.1.101 Public/private 8080 Schedule Always.
(I have the other port on another line with an address of 192.168.1.101,
which is the address of the DVR.)
I have the following typed in later lines of my Advanced Virtual Servers
What port(s) should I allow for Samba?
The D-Link router allows "mapping" of two port numbers between the Windows
computer and the DVR. I think I need something similar here.
The Windows Vista has a hard-coded IP of 192.168.1.102 and the Linux
system has a hard-coded IP of 192.168.2.1.
If anyone can offer any suggestions, I would appreciate it. Thank you!
