Mapping network drive for Samba

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I just set up a samba server on my F17 so I can share files with my Virt Machine running WinXP. I've set up a share foler (/home/samba) for samba to use rather than a partition. Now when I go to windows xp and try to map a drive letter, I type \\<myip>\MyFiles and it says that the network path could not be found. I'm very new to networking so I'm not quite sure which IP to use. I've tried all the ones that ifconfig gave me as well as trying to use my public IP that I got from google. My smb.conf looks like this (except for the USERNAME bit at the end): Code: [global] &nbsp (HowTos)
