SMB fun

[ #11213 ]
In early spring cleaning fun, I'm moving stuff onto the semi-new home file server. It runs samba, but only one other system seems to able to mount it. SANDBOX (a windows box) can't (or won't) see LABRAT (the file server), but LABRAT sees SANDBOX (via smbmount). V5 (the dying laptop) sees SANDOX, but not LABRAT. Neither LABRAT nor SANBOX see V5. Whee! Fortunately, that's enough, though getting stuff from V5 to LABRAT takes a mid-flight stop on SANDBOX. My wife's laptop isn't an issue, and the replacement laptop won't arrive until next week. It'll need a name. I'm thinking LAPDANCE.

Part of the cleanup involves getting all manner of stray stuff into CVS, so I can sleep better at night.

  • I should be embarassed to admit this, but when I was having trouble getting my samba server to be visible to the windows boxes, the trouble turned out to be my ipchains configuration. I forgot I ever turned it on, frankly. (By way of explanation, I have a router with built-in firewall, so I didn't even need ipchains.)
