Connecting from Linux to Windows through Samba
Posted on 2004-09-08
I'm having a problem connecting from a Linux box to a Windows2000 machine using samba. When I run
smbclient -L gonzo
I get the following:
added interface ip=10.0.0.5 bcast=10.0.0.255 nmask=255.255.255.0
timeout connecting to 10.0.0.4:139
Error connecting to 10.0.0.4 (Operation already in progress)
Connection to gonzo failed
What does this mean, and what do I have to do to make it work?
The Windows2k machine has one folder shared, which has read permission for everyone. I've checked that the workgroup settings are ok and everything else seems to be ok with the w2k box. I've also got another linux box (server) running a samba server in my network. Connecting to it from both the w2k and linux machines works fine.
Thanks for any comments or suggestions!
