you need to configure your samba server which is your linux machine
to accept windows 2000 client.

if you are using redhat 8 than you get a utility sawat to configure your linux samba server you have also find brief description or help on each parameter.

you will also need to add users in your samba user database.

Yes, you'd need SMB whether you need to access files from the the Linux server or to upload files from it. You can choose to not expose any shares from the SAMBA box, but you need SAMBA installed and running no matter what.

This is not a problem. SAMBA works quite well with Windows domains. Coupled with winbind, there's almost nothing SMB related you can do in Windows that you can't on Linux. For example, name resolution (ping in addition to nmblookup), authentication (login to linux using your domain account) etc. set

local master = no

to stop samba from even participating in browser election.

Aslam-o-Aliakum,

As far u said

kadnan wrote:Windows is installed on server
my client is linux and i want to browse other windows machines,


main objective is to access windows machine from Linux machine(s). for this purpose there is an easy way, plz've on these two commands

To browse machine and network + access client

smbclient

for browsing machine
e.g. #smbclient -I <ip address of windows machine> -L <name of windows machine>
smbclient -I 10.0.0.1 -L devil

To mount a network folder or drive

smbmount <machine path> <mount point path> username%password

(if shared to guest no need of username and password but remember security level of machine is SHARED level)

e.g. smbmount //<machine name>/<folder or drivename> /mnt/net devil%awaken
if u find anything which shows my lack of knowledge,

please guide me... thx
