View Full Version : Samba???

Hey, I've got my computer hooke dup to an internet router, which works fine. What I want to do is have access to the shared files on my windows PC's also on this network. I've read stuff about a Samba Server, or is it client :confused: What packages do I need to install, and what do I need to do to get access to the Windows PC's?

To read files shared by Windows boxes all you need is Samba client on your FC box. I've only done this with Windows shares set to "share level" access but it seems to work pretty much out of the box. One thing I cannot get to work in this sort of scenario is access to Windows shared printer. FC sees the printer but cannot connect to it - gives an NTAUTHORITY error.

There's loads of Samba info here: http://yumi.ziet.zhitomir.ua/docs/samba30/index.html

Hope that helps.
