Am trying to add a samba server to my home LAN. Several problems are emerging:
1) When I try to 'net view \<server> it appears to be routing to a machine outside the local network. Everything is in the 192.168.1 space and my 'ping <server>' is returning a system in the 208.67 space
2) When I try to 'net view \<IP address> of my samba server I get 'access denied'.
3) 2) When I try to 'net use * \<IP address>\<my folder> of my samba server with an account that I can use to SSH to the machine it doesn't recognize it.
Im new to the smb.conf settings so its clear that Im missing several steps.
When I do 'testparm' I get this:
Server role: ROLE_STANDALONE Press enter to see a dump of your service definitions [global] workgroup = HOME server string = Samba Server Version %v interfaces = lo, eth0 passdb backend = tdbsam log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m max log size = 50 os level = 33 dns proxy = No wins support = Yes hosts allow = 192.168.1., 127.0.0.1 cups options = raw [homes] comment = Home Directories valid users = %S read only = No [printers] comment = All Printers path = /var/spool/samba printable = Yes browseable = No
Suggestions on what all is wrong? Am attemping connections from WinXP and Vista. OS is Fedora 9.
