like many other guys in this forum I have a problem with Samba. The situation is: My Workstation running Fedora Core2 x86_64 is the Samba server and the client is my Windows 2000 laptop. From the Laptop everything is fine, I can see and browse my shares, even the printer is working ok. From the linux box I can see the laptop only when I start smbclient from the command line. So I think my smb.conf is ok, I have used the same config with the two computers on other linux distros and also on a freebsd always sucssesfully.
After I read about problems with both nautilus and konquerer to browse smb shares in this forum, I installed linneighborhood today. Installed fine, finds and lists my windows shares also, but when I'm trying to mount a share I get an error message: "can't resolv name".
So I tried following: The dhcp-server is running on the linux box, the dhcp-address is given dynamically. On my Windos box I started IPCONFIG and found 192.168.0.167 is used at the moment. So I started nautilus typed "smb://192.168.0.167/Data" (where "Data" is my windows share), entered username and passwordand... whoppie! there ist is!
My question now: Do I have to place something into /etc/resolv.conf for nautilus or linneighborhood to browse the windos-shares, and, if yes, what to enter hor a dynamic dhcp?
I hope my explanation was clear enough...
