Yes, I've always had good luck with this configuration too. I believe the problem is Vista (Home Premium). I can list the resources on my old P3 XP machine just fine with smbclient -L 192.168.0.104 (it asks for a password, which I enter). When I try to list the shares on the Vista box: ===[root] /usr/local/share/apsfilter > smbclient -L 192.168.0.20 Password: smbclient in free(): error: junk pointer, too high to make sense Abort trap: 6 (core dumped) and then I'm stuck :-( I had to hack the registry in the Vista machine in order for it to see and use a share on my FreeBSD hard drive, and that works fine. But since moving from XP to Vista, I can't seem to see or use any shares on the Vista box from FreeBSD (and I have 6.2R now and the versions of samba are noted above). I'm starting to look around samba.org but nothing is popping up just yet. -gerry _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
