You talking about samba right?
OK, if you really have to use the gui's - then vi /etc/sysconfig/network
change the rules to allow at least localhost else you can't run swat!!!
vi /etc/xinetd/swat (check as this is from the head)
ps -ef |grep xinetd (will look up th pid's for xinetd)
kill -HUP (the pid number) or else just reboot if you can't be assed like
I think you have to kill inetd aswell - can't remember
Open up whatever web browser you like and connect to
Port 901 is swat (by default) This utility exists in Mandrake too and is run
from the start menu.
I use webmin coz its great.
As for creating a domain, with win2k and nt4 this is not YET supported (NT
domain logon's) but the new version of samba does, you have to compile the
binaries yourself though. It WILL do domain authentification for 9x clients
though, and the nt box's will still have access but you shall logon to the
local machine rather than the domain. Works though.
I use this at home and its cool.
Try editing the /etc/samba/smb.conf for yourself, with 5 changes you can do
all this yourself.
Also handy script in RH - samba status / start / stop / restart. And if you
are having issues then check the logs
/var/log/samba?/log.nmb / log.smb
They will solve your problems...
Good Luck - and I apologise in advance if this was beneath you sire.
I have set up a new machine with Redhat7.0 and i cant seem to find the
graphical tools inside Gnome or Kde to set it up in the local WORKGROUP. I
have a few Win98, Win2000 & Mandrake7.0 machines in the workgroup already. I
previously used the "DrakConf" utility to set up the Mandrake machines for
all my networking requirments, but there doesnt seem to be any such utility
provided with redhat. All i can find in the redhat installation is options
for joining/creating a domain which I don't want to get into (due to the
network being small).
