Look at the file under /usr/doc/samba-2.0.3/examples/simple
and /usr/doc/samba-2.0.3/docs
This should give you a pretty good idea on where to start out.
Of course after editing this file you actually have to start samba by /usr/sbin/samba start and you should see an [OK] for both SMB and NMB services.

Exceed is probably looking for an X diaplay manager.
To see the PC from Exceed make sure the display
manager is running.
If you're using Gnome it's gdm and if you're using
KDE it's kdm.

Concerning the configuration of samba you should have a look at the following internet address:
http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/samba/chapter/book/index.html

This should answer all questions about Samba... I think it's a good book.

The O'Rielly book is a good one. I wonder if you have tried out any of the web-based samba administration utilities like SWAT or Webmin.

first of all-- exceed doesn't need kdm , gdm or xdm running.
kdm, xdm are essentially part of the Xserver. exceed IS (or rather has) the Xserver. in fact, you don't even need ANY X software on linux to use exceed. you do need the X *APPS* that you want to run, to be installed on linux.

try launching "Xstart" in the exceed suit. put in just the ip address instead of the host name.

assuming that you want to have an Xsession:

the default "start method" when you start exceed is either rexec or rsh.
i haven't used either of 'em so i don't know much about it.

for linux, it's easiest to use 'telnet(tcp/ip)' because you probably have telnet server running (standard on most distros). besides, once you get it running with the telnet option, it's easy to reconfigure it to use RLOGIN or REXEC.

then click on 'settings/other' and check both show progress and show host reply. click on OK

then, where it says 'command' put in the full path of an X application. like 'startkde' if you want your favorite linux desktop on windows. or netscape or whatever.

then click on run! on the menu bar. and off ya go.

if you are running into problems, you'll see what it is because you clicked on show-progress/show-host-reply.

hope that helps you out.

Yeah problem is that you DNS does not have a host name relating to the linux boxes IP address. Add the name to your DNS and hey presto.
