[SOLVED] connecting cent to windows shares

Postby j0n1n » 2012/11/18 16:30:31

hi guys,

i have a separate box dedicated to centos to try and learn more about this cool OS.

i have a windoze box i do all my downloading on etc, trying to connect the cent to a windows share to transfer files and the like. my windows box is on a domain, though the server isnt always on, my firewall is handling dhcp etc...not that i would think it matters...

ok so i go to places / connect to server

change service type to windows share
then theres a server box ...do i put the computer name? or ip address? is linux the same as windows? do i have to put \\ before the ip?
like \\192.168.1.35?

after that is folder and share....whats the difference? i just put the name of the folder i shared "centos" in this case, i have shared it with everyone.
then there is username and domain

should i connect using the domain account on the win 7 box, or leave out domain and use the local admin account?
anyhow it keeps coming up with error:

cannot display location smb- etc etc

whats the correct way to set this up

any help appreciated

ok managed to get it sorted...pinged the window box by name, couldnt see it...only by ip address

so put in ip (just ip)
folder name centos
put the local machine account name not domain account
left domain empty
then put in password and it created a folder on my desktop to 192.168.1.35
awesome!!! if you mess around and try you can get things working

thanks for reading

Unfortunately, there is no such thing like the SOLVED button with the current forum software. :-( I have marked the thread [SOLVED] on your behalf.
