I have a windows xp machine. I also have a dual boot (windows 7) and opensuse 11.4 machine. I wish to network between the two machines but I am having problems.
I can network the windows xp machine with the dual boot machine when running windows 7 with no problem.
I cannot network the windows xp machine with the dual boot machine when running opensuse 11.4. I’ve tried many things with samba and other network processes.
Some questions I have been thinking about. Do I need for the machine names for the dual boot machine to be the same whether on windows 7 or opensuse and make the one machine name part of windows workgroup? With different machine names should I try to add each machine name to the windowxs xp workgroup, essentially making the setup look like two machines where only one would be working at a time. This may be problem since they would have the same ip address?
Anyone have any ideas on this?
Thanks, Tom Kosvic
