I'm trying to network my linux box and my NT box to share a net
connection and also share files etc.
I'm using Samba and I'm running Corel Linux on this particuar linux box
(corel - I know, but my dad likes it, I've got rehat on my personal box,
anyway - everything is working grand on the NT side (unbelievable - if
after considerable effort) and I can access the Linux machine no problem
I can't do this from the linux machine however
when I go to the file manager and the "windows network" section (sounds
like I'm talking about windows doesn't it?) it brings up a dialogue box
Incorrect password or unknown username for:
Microsoft Windows Network
Password: [ ]
(the bits between the [ ]'s are input boxes
as far as I know it shouldn't need a password.
I running Samba client so I presume any password it needs would be
stored on the NT machine
does anybody know enough about this stuff to figure out what's wrong?
anybody still using their free copy of corel linux?
