Lunix Server with Windows NT 4.0 Server

By your wording, I assume this is to avoid needing multiple licenses. Either way though, this should work, and it should only require 1 license (depending who you ask).

Install Samba on your Linux box, and then correctly configure the smb.conf file (It's very well documented throughout). Once your linux box can see your NT box, simply create a mountpoint for your NT share, then mount it (smbmount will fail, but give details so you can succeed in a more concise form than the man pages). Once mounted, start samba (SMBD & NMBD). This should allow you to connect to the Samba share, which in turn is pointing to the NT share.

You'll find this much faster though if you move the data off the NT box, and onto the Linux box. The way I suggested above, your client will request a file from the Linux box. The linux box will request the file from the NT box, the NT box will respong to the Linux box, and the Linux box will (finally) respond to the client.

Kev.

I am not sure of the Access Windows NT 4.0 Server part. By that I assume you want to clients to connect to the Linux machine to get files from the NT Server.

Or you may be saying that you will manage the user accounts on the NT PDC but the clients will use the Linux machine which will authenticate users against the NT PDC.

Please provide some more information about the clients (WIndows 98 or WIndows NT 4.0 or 95 or whatever), whether you are going to provide print shares and whether your NT server is installed as a PDC or just a plain server.
