By iftequar ·
I have install smb server and configured SWAT and share. I also configured win 98 for tcpip. I gave root / as share with allow access for the win98 client. My workgroup is NTdomain and the wins server is linuxserver but i am unable to see the linux server in the win98 network neighbourhood. Please explain what else to see before confi. swat I also start all the demon process.

Try to make the following changes in smb.conf:

security = user
domain logons = yes
os level = 34

By the way, I reccomend you do not use SWAT and make all the changes manually. Besides, there is a good book "Using Samba" which is free and distributed with new SAMBA packages. There is a lot cool information about servers setup.

You may also note that Win98 'Network Neighborhood' doesn't always display workgroup PC's (at least, not in Peer-2-Peer). On the Win98 box, try locating the 'unfound' PC by <Start | Find | Computer> and enter exact PC identification of the PC to befound. I have on many occasions discovered networked PC's via this method that 'Network Neighborhood' doesn't display.

Unless newer versions os Samba have changed, you need to install NetBEUI AND TCP/IP on the client workstations. Samba uses both.
Try telnetting to the Linux box. If it lets you in, then you will at least know that your TCP/IP and username and password are working properly.

Ok, I've had this same issue.
go to the /etc directory. type pico smb.conf
go to the [global] section
look and see if there is a setting that looks like this
workgroup = *SOMETHING*
if there is anything typed there, replace it with your internal domain and or workgroup.
then, save the changes to smb.conf, exit pico, and type testparm
that will restart your samba service.
hit refresh in network neighborhood and it should be there.
