I have a Linux PC on the local university network.
My network configuration is working ok: I can send/recieve mail, telnet, connect to usenet,...
Except for connections to one PC. This server is running Windows 3.1 with the bw-tcp software.
All SAMBA connections from my Linux box to this PC fail with the message `connection refused'.
The server accepts requests from other PC's and from our local HP-UX workststations using SAMBA.
Does anybody know a solution to this problem? (Upgrading the server's software is not an option, as it is not managed by myself.)

This is a tough one.

First you need to know the port that bw-tcp is using on the win3.11 box. (ps www.linux.org HOWTO IPFORWARDING) Then you will need to edit your rc.inet1 to pass the win3.11 packets.  

This may not work!!!  Their are some servers that linux just doesnt like bw-tcp may just be one of them!

It sounds like you have narrowed the search to your linux box though.  Almost all solution in the HOWTO require you to re-compile the kernel and edit major system files.  If you dont have access to this I suggest you just try another server that uses, perhaps another port.

good luck,

Ray
