I am tryin to establish a connection between a RHLinux guest and my WindowsXP host using the command (inside the guest):
mount -t smbfs -o username=wjackson,password=password //wj/stage /home/winxp
and failing after a few seconds with:
timeout connecting to 192.168.0.1:445
timeout cinnecting to 192.168.0.1:139
Error connecting to 192.168.0.1 (Operation already in progress)
4103: Connection to wj failed
SMB connection failed
My hosts file looks like this:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
192.168.0.1 wjackson-au wj
I can ping the host on 192.168.0.1 via VMNet1
My guest ip address is 192.168.0.128 - obtained via DHCP with the correct broadcast address and netmask.
Anyone got any ideas?
Disable the Firewall in windos XP
Try using IP address in mount command, you may also use
smbclient -L Host
Thanks, but I had already tried that but found that not only did I have the Windows firewall active, I also had a Symantec one installed....
