    Question Samba 11.4 with Vista KO

    Hello all.
    I am using OpenSuse 11.4 (64 bits) with KDE on my PC. I have another PC running with Windows Vista. Both are connected to an Internet box (hub), the OpenSuse one by RJ45 link and the Vista one by Wifi. I would like to share files between them with Samba but I do not succeed in... I have followed this note: How To Samba With openSUSE 11.2 and Windows. I do exactly what is written (except under YaST -> System Services (Runlevel), there is no smbfs service). I also added my user login typing ">smbpasswd -aen my_user_name" in a su terminal.
    Under YaST -> AppArmor configuration panel, I set nmbd and smbd to "Complain": now, on http://localhost:901/status, smbd, nmbd and winbindd are running.
    But on Vista, the OpenSuse PC does not appear on the network.
    Thanks for your help. This is the first time I try to use Samba...

    Have you set, Samba Server, Samba Client and NetBios Server as allowed
    services in the firewall: Yast--> Security and Users--> Firewall Allowed
    Services. Make sure both smb and nmb are running.
    Code:
    ps -A | grep mbd
    You should see at least one occurrence of smbd and nmbd.

    I've not looked at the Howto on tweakhound, but this one I know is well
    written and specific to OpenSuSE:

    Yes, Samba client, Samba server and NetBios server services are allowed by my firewall. And both smb and nmb are running:
    >ps -A | grep mbd
    15613 ? 00:00:00 smbd
    15614 ? 00:00:00 smbd
    16783 ? 00:00:00 nmbd
    I will have a look on the other documentation you mention, thanks a lot for your answer, I will let you know.

    It might be useful to set windows 7 for easy coupling to openSUSE via Samba. I found that win 7 just locked in the network browser if I didn't adjust it a bit to see openSUSE easily. Here's the discussion: HowTo Setup Windows 7 for Network Sharing with Samba and openSUSE
