Samba help!

Okay. I’ve got 12gb of data that is sitting on a linux file system that I
need to be able to access from Windows 2000 (sp2). The only way I can
access the data now is to go to a command prompt in Windows 2000 and do:

c:>net use \linux.box.ip /user:username :enter password

Then, start -> run -> \linux.box.ip That opens up the file tree.

The problem is that this goes through the internet, capped at 45kb/s -
courtesy of Time Warner Road Runner. I need to be able to access the data
at 10MBit/sec (LAN speed). How can I do this? In addition, how can I
configure Samba to be viewable in the “My Network Places”

I would try adding a second non-routable IP to both computers (192.168.1.1
and .2 for example) assuming they are both connected via a hub or switch
in addition to your cable modem. That should solve the speed problem.

To make it show up in Network Places make sure they have the same
workgroup and that nmbd is running on your linux box.

Thanks for the tip. How would I go about doing that? :expressionless: I’m a
networking newbie.

In Windows XP you go into the Network Connections, select Local Area
Network, Properties, TCP/IP, Advanced and add a second IP to the list. I
think it is very similar for Windows 2000, but I’ve never used it so I
can’t really say.

As for Linux it really depends on what distro you are using, for Slackware
I modified the /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 file.

I couldn’t get it set up. :frowning: It appears that the service is running, but
when I go to http://localhost:901 nothing shows up.

I have DHCP enabled and as a result I cannot add an IP.

In that case I guess you can’t do it.

Sure he can he add’s a second NIC to the Computer that is connected to the
Cable modem. He gives that NIC a non routable number and connects it to
his network switch or hub.

Yes that would work. I guess I was thinking within the constraints of his
current hardware since it sounds like both computers are already on the
same lan but route through the cable modem to talk to each other.
