Setup samba centos 6.3

Setup samba centos 6.3

I am trying to setup samba on centos 6.3.
I already have samba working on centos 5.
I have followed every instruction that I can find using Google but I still cannot see the samba server with Windows 7

Any advice please.

RE: Setup samba centos 6.3

A little more info might help.....

Can you see it with any other OS besides Win7?
What is the firewall status of this server?
What is the SELinux status of this server?

RE: Setup samba centos 6.3

Hi smah...
Thanks for your post.
However, I have now solved the problem.
I followed every installation guide that I could find, with Google, but nothing worked.
I then read an email that mentioned NMB. I just checked and NMB wasn't running. So I started it and all worked fine.
I must say, in my defense, that none of the guides that I followed made any mention of NMB at all. It was merely by accident that I solved the problem.
I know I should have known, but I'm THICK !! !

Thanks anyway...
