I'm having a problem getting Samba set up on one computer, and any
pointers would be appreciated.
I have two computers, identical except that one has an 80 gig drive and
the other has a 250 gig drive. Both have an external USB drive, which
is the drive I'm trying to share out across a home network. Both have
the standard Debian Samba (126.96.36.199) installed on them. One works
perfectly. When the USB drive is present, it's shared; when it's
disconnected from it's computer, obviously, it's not available, but when
I connect it back up - BOOM - it's there. My Windows 7 computer loves
it for a network drive. The other one works not at all.
I've followed the setup as described at howtoforge.com for setting up
Samba, and my windows 7 computer just won't browse to it.
It's probably something careless on my part, but I can't figure it out.
Someone have time to start walking me through it?
