08-27-2003, 04:56 AM

I have a little LAN on my office. My machine run knoppix and others using windows.
Using LinNeiborhood I can access their share folder on machine that run windows but my friend that run windows cannot access my machine.

What should I do to fix this problem ?

Have you configured samba?
If not you should do:

Be root.
Edit /etc/samba/smb.conf
Insert a section like this:

browseable = yes
path = /home/mydata
read only = no
create mask = 0775
directory mask = 0777

After changing config data you must inform the samba daemons:

/etc/init.d/samba restart

You must create a user entry for every user who will access this directory:

smbpasswd -a jonny

Good luck!
