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 but somehow it's not there. Can anyone help with this too.

Thanks a lot in advance.
