Hi, I am using samba version 3 (probably), and the problem is that the linux
based nas can only be accessed via its ip 192.168.x.x but not its hostname
/server string appointed by the smb.conf file:
netbios name = NAS
server string = NAS
smb passwd file = /etc/smbpasswd
security = SHARE
workgroup = WORKGROUP
encrypt passwords = true
short preserve case = yes
preserve case = yes
guest account = ftp
guest ok = yes
force user = root
force group = root
interfaces = eth0 lo
I tried to search this problem online, but there is very little information
and answered questions regarding.
