Accessing Samba shares on external webserver(s) - how to access
Posted on 2014-09-29
I have recently been getting some samba shares to work on a new Solaris server.
Now that these are working (and browsable), I move on to the next hurdle!
We have a few externally hosted (Windows Server 2008 R2) web servers which are not on our domain, but can still communicate with our network.
I can successfully browse to the samba shares on the existing (soon to be retired) solaris server from these webservers.
These web servers can successfully ping the new solaris server, but I cannot browse to the shares whether I use the server name or the IP address.
I have added the new solaris server/ip address to the Hosts file on the webservers, but this has not made a difference.
Can anyone help me to access the samba shares from these WebServers?
