Network Control on my laptop, help..
I am using Samba in my Laptop. I am also using a belkin router. I would like to set up smb root broadcast in the network. Where can I find more details to do this? I will be thankful for your help to get out of this problem.
Network Control set up smb root broadcast
I would suggest that first please test your "smb.conf" file using "testparm" application. This application will tell you any errors in smb.conf file.
If there are no errors in smb.conf file then please follow the instructions below to setup broadcast:
Most of the Linux based installation configures the iptables by default. If you are in secured network then please ensure if it is deactivated otherwise you can configure such Microsoft protocols, NetBIOS for UDP 137 and 138, TCP 139) and TCP 445 for with NetBIOS of SMB sharing.
Here is script:
NETWORK="192.168.1.24" # this is for Local area network
BROADCAST="192.168.255.255" # this is for Local area network Broadcast Address
Please let me know if this helped.
