    Question Samba, from suse 11.1 to vista

    Hi all
    i'm trying to have full access to my local network vista pc from suse 11.1.
    On suse 11.1 i installed samba with # zypper in samba* and then used the yast tool for samba server, i asked the daemon to be charged while booting and changed the workgroup to Home (which is what's on Vista).
    When i acces to Vista from Suse 11.1 in Dolphin with smb:/ip_of_vista_pc and using a user ID and password it does not give me a good result : some directories are hidden , some seems locked with a padlock on them.

    I have a "this file does not exist " message and then a "the process treating smb:/vista_pc_ip stopped in an unexpected way"

    Is there something more to do on Suse or on Vista ?
    How can i be sure the id and password i'm using on vista are the root one's ?

    i have the same problems with konqueror : i see some of the files in the directory, not all of them
    i also have the error messages "this file does not exist " message and then a "the process treating smb:/vista_pc_ip stopped in an unexpected way"


    Is there something more to do on Suse or on Vista ?
    How can i be sure the id and password i'm using to acces vista from dolphin or konqueror are vista's admin one's ?


    thanks

    Padlocks? Hmm.. Try setting up in vista's network and sharing centre with "Password Protected = OFF", just to eliminate that possibility for the time being.

    Also the RPMs you probably got: samba & samba-client?

    Also check the firewall with this:
    HTML Code:
    cat /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2 | egrep "FW_DEV_EXT=|FW_CONFIGURATIONS_EXT=|RELATED_EXT="
    It should return like this:
    FW_DEV_EXT="any eth0 wlan0"
    FW_CONFIGURATIONS_EXT="netbios-server samba-server"
    FW_SERVICES_ACCEPT_RELATED_EXT="192.168.1.0/24,udp,137"

    Hello

    is a password needed on vista ? i had a password mandatory to share files, i put this off for the moment.

    yes i installed at least samba and samba-client
    here's what i have :
    ~> cat /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2 | egrep "FW_DEV_EXT=|FW_CONFIGURATIONS_EXT=|RELATED_EXT="
    FW_DEV_EXT="any eth0"
    FW_CONFIGURATIONS_EXT="samba-server"
    FW_SERVICES_ACCEPT_RELATED_EXT=""


    do i have to add ?:
    netbios-server
    192.168.1.0/24,udp,137 : is this supposed to be the ip of the vista pc or of the suse pc ? shall i put there something like 192.168.0.0/24 (between 192.168.0.0 and 192.168.0.24) ?
    what's udp and 137 for ?

    Those were just a few tweaks to eliminate uncertainties.
    I can't think what is causing your problem. I hope someone else has some ideas.

    PS - FYI:

    192.168.0.0/24,udp,137 is read by the system and is interpreted as:
    allow udp signals on port 137 from the network range 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.255

    netbios-server is a new device the devs quietly added to SuSEfirewall2 in 11.1. It opens ports that used to be opened in earlier Suse releases by a different method.
