Problems With Modem/ Samba Too

Postby Jis4jag » Wed Oct 23, 2002 1:26 am

I Use Mandrake 8.2 As my Distribution.

I've been trying to configure Samba on my desktop. Somehow when i run the command smbclient -L Hostname it gives me the shared drives on the host i want, but when i try to look for my linux PC on the netowork it is not found by a Windows PC. The pings are perfect for all my systems from and to Linux. I've tried reading up on it, the configurations are matched to the hilt. I don't know what i'm doing wrong. It's a peer-2-peer system, btw, and i dont' have a DHCP server running anywhere.

Plus, i require a modem driver for my Motorola Modem and for my notebook (HP ZE1110). I've tried searching for it on linmodems.com but somehow it's not there. Can anyone help with this too.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Jaguar.
