Default Re: Novice Networker

Actually, I did setup Samba last night...not that I knew what I was doing. When I got to looking at Windows shares, I got to wondering just who I would be sharing with? There is no need for privacy or security between the PCs, but I don't want anything accessible online. At the moment, none of my HDs on the Windows machine are visible in Linux, nor are Linux HDs visible in the Windows rig. Maybe I'm wrong, but it would seem as though the HDs would have to become visible, before any files would be.

From what you said, it sounds as though that only files in Windows Shares would be accessible in the Linux that correct?
