New router: Win7 can't see Samba on Iyonix
05/12/2017 10:19
This morning I was switched from ADSL2+ to Cable (FTTC) which has done wonders for speed: up from 1.8Mbps to 37.0Mbps :) However, this entailed a new router which has a fixed IP of 192.168.1.254 , a different series to my setup until now (was 192.168.0.xx) so having changed both network printers to the new series, and also the Iyonix internet settings, all is working again . . . with the exception of the link between Laptop (wirelessly) and iyonix (hard-wired).

Samba is no longer being recognised by Windows7. I have changed the interfaces entry in its 'Global Variables' page to 192.168.1.3/255.255.255.0 , and have rebooted both computers. Both happily access the internet and the printers. I altered and re-saved a Hosts file to Windows/System32 to reflect the changed series.

I can 'ping' each computer from the other.

But the Network on Windows7 shows only the laptop, and as far as I can see the only options for adding to the network there are to add a printer or a wireless device: how do you enlarge the Network to include another computer which is hard-wired to the router? Any suggestions of how to get Win7 to recognise Samba again, please? John

As far as I can see that is the case: in fact with both computers connecting to the web / printers, etc, they must be compatible? I have extracted this from Samba's log file in case it contains any clues: [2011/06/20 19:39:02, 0] ^.src.lib.c.util_sock:(573) bind failed on port 137 socket_addr=3D0.0.0.0 (48,unknown error) [2011/06/20 19:39:02, 0] :(1608) omniclient is using socket 2 for port 137 [2011/06/20 19:39:02, 0] ^.src.libsmb.c.namequery:(436) getlmhostsent: too many columns in lmhosts file (obsolete syntax) [2011/06/20 19:40:08, 0] ^.src.nmbd.c.nmbd_interface:(133) Got SIGTERM: going down...

Find out why the broadcasts aren't being sent/received. Check that every computer has the same network number (192.168.1) anmd the same network mask (255.255.255.0). Check the settings in !smbserve related to netbios - sorry, I don't have a copy easily tested, and I'm about to leave for a meeting.

I can check later if you are still having trouble.

05/12/2017 10:19 - Bloody computers! It looks as if this thread can be wound up: after yet another boot-up on the Iyonix, and without altering anything on either machine, the Samba shares have suddenly decided to appear.

I trust they will now be permanently available: it's just too useful having the two connected instead of transferring files by USB stick.

Thanks anyway for looking! John
