I am able to mount a Win 98 drive through Samba over a simple home network, but it is taking 3-4 mins before I'm asked for the password.   Any ideas on what might be causing this?   Both machines have Genius cards with simple coaxil cable.

I am no expert, but what network IP class are you using?

Should be for simple home network class C

IP 192.168.0.X
SM 255.255.255.0

Sounds like you may have a class A, and it's a big permutation?

If you are using coax, do you have tee's & 50 ohm terminators at each end of the coax cable?

Hi

howmany protocols are installed?
usualy tcp/ip should be the one and only used protocol. you must also assign ip-networknumbers to both machines.

try 192.168.10.10 with 255.255.255.0
and 192.168.10.20 with 255.255.255.0
as netmask.

Also it might be a DNS timeout. The Linux box may be trying to look up the name of the cwindows client in DNS. Solve that by adding the client IP & hostname to your /etc/hosts file.

Yes, the coaxial has tees and 50ohm terminators at each end.   I'm using 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2 and 255.255.255.0 as IP's and netmask.   What I do have is the wrong hostname under /etc/hosts - have just changed it and will let you know if this is it when my son gets off AvP!
