You have to start samba server and define the exported directories.

Make sure that nmb is started, and allowed through the firewall of openSUSE. It is best for you to
start both nmb(d) and smb(d) at startup. Allow the Samba server, netbios server and Samba client
through the firewall. For details see:
http://opensuse.swerdna.org/suselanprimer.html.

There are also a few settings that need to be made with VISTA for file/printer sharing. See:
http://opensuse.swerdna.org/susesambavista.html

It might also help to read the sticky at the top of this forum on SuSE and systemd.

on my firewall settings in allowed services, i have netbios server, samba server, samba client. under broadcast i have external zone samba browsing all networks in the accepting the broadcast reply…

is that safe? is that only on my network? is there a way to drill it down to ip addressess,

do i just add an ip address under network when i add an ip address, do i have to add an ip address for each computer or can i do a range of addresses?

As long as you are on a private network, I would not worry the least bit about broadcasts.
Can you elaborate some on the following?

I’m not sure what you are asking about. Is this a reference to the firewall? Which setting?

Do read the sticky on Samba and systemd.

If you are still having a problem with Samba please post the contents of:
/etc/samba/smb.conf, you can use substitute values for any sensitive data such as public
domains or IPs.

Yes, you can use the var “FW_TRUSTED_NETS”.
