smb.conf is the main Samba configuration file. You find a full commented

version at /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/smb.conf.SUSE if the

samba-doc package is installed.

Hi. Turn off the openSUSE firewall and see if that works. In case it does, enable samba browsing in the broadcast section of the firewall. There are already some threads on that issue, maybe you find advice there. Good luck!

I don’t know how to turn off “firewall” ?

In a root shell you can type “rcSuSEfirewall2 stop”. Or you can use Yast → Security and Users → Firewall and stop it there.
How do you try to connect to your windows box by the way? Does it work in a file manager (dolphin, konqueror…) when you enter “smb://ip-of-your-windows-box”?
