Comp A = Win XP (Acting as a Server)
Comp B = Redhat 9.0 (Acting as a Client)
Comp C = Redhat 9.0 (Acting as a Server)

Comp A has a static ip is 192.168.0.1
Comp B has samba installed and ip is ontain automaticly
Comp C has samba installed and ip is 192.168.0.1

Comp A and Comp B worked together.

Then I tried Comp B and Comp C and it didn't work.

Then I tried specifying Comp B ip to 192.168.0.2
But that didn't work. The best I could do is get them to ping each other.

I keep getting this error when i go into "Network Servers":
"Couldn't display 'smb:///', because Nautilus cannot contact the SMB master browser.
Check that an SMB server is running in the local network."

I think there is something wrong with Comp C and how it was set up for networking, but I'm not sure I'm new to Linux.

I'm not sure if this is a mistake in your message, but you have both comp
A and C using the same IP.

If this is just a typo, what is the 3rd IP?

hi,

Try to disable firewall both in xp and also in the linux box.(iptables) and see if it works.

oo.. i'd never disable iptables. Check to make sure that both smbd and nmbd are running on both linux boxes.
