Hi
I use smb:// from a linux machine, not sure but it may be smb:/// from
an xp machine?

You need to open the appropriate ports on the firewall, ports 139,445
for remote machines to connect.

Checkout Swerdna’s homepage for additional information :slight_smile:

hi how can i open ports in opensuse?

Hi
Via YaST->Security and Users -> Firewall, select ‘Allowed Services’ on
the left then select the dropdown on the right called ‘Service to
Allow’ and select the samba server and press the add button, then next
to finish.

Wow Malcolm!

You were most patient and follow the thread with clear answers. I was facing a subset of the problem. Your help is much appreciated…

We need to stabilize procedures across Linux versions. Then, we can focus on new features, device support, platforms, etc.

Consistent installations and UI across the zillion versions of Linux. I know one shoe does not fit all but among the most popular distributions we need to have consistency.

Thanks again!
