RE: win95 says network name not foun

first of all you need to set your global settings
once you configure RH, and win95 correctly you won't
need to use ip addrerssing to access shares.

are your network cards active on both systems?

can you ping from either systems and get a reply back?
you need to start with the basics.
can you view anything in network neighbour hood?
do you have /etc/hosts modified with the ipaddress and name of the
win9x machine?

Subject: win95 says network name not foun

I tried to get my win95 machine to talk to my RH 6.0 box using Samba, but
having some problems.
My smb.conf looks like that:

    comment = Samba Server 400
    path = /usr
    public = yes
    writable = yes
    printable = yes
    user = david
    ; ... etc.

It is kind of short without the global, homes and priners section, but that
is all I got after using
Linuxconf to config. Samba.

When I log on to my Linux machine, if I do:

/etc/rc.d/init.d/smb status

It shows that both the smbd and nmbd daemons are running.

After my linux machine is up and running, I logon to my win95 machine with
userid david and go to
Start -> Run, then type \\, where is my Linux
machine's IP, after a while this

The network name coulnd't be found

(or something very similiar to that)

error message will pop up. What exactly is this error message all about???

If I tried to http, telnet, ftp or ping my Linux machine with the above IP,
everything worked as expected.

Why is everything works but Samba??? How do I get Samba to work???

I must say that I actually got it to work once a couple weeks ago, ie. I was
able to see my Linux machine from my win95 machine by typing \\
in the Run box. But after I reinstalled RH 6.0 (with the exact
configuration),  this whole thing failed to work.
