Question Linux Machine Can access share on Mac bot the reverse dosen't work.

I rently installed Ubuntu Hardy On my Hp p apvilion A6230n, and was able to get ThMy hp Ohotosmart C4280 printer shared via bonjour perfectly how ever upon configuring samba on Iron (the Linux box) Zin ( my mac bgook couldn't connect to the samba shares on Iron.

Here is the /etc/hosts fike in addtion to it I will include the /et/samba/smb.conf file


[CODE GNU nano 2.0.7 File: /etc/hosts localhost IRON

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

# LAN IP NUM FQDN Short name davie.compuporter.net Davie chrome.compuporter.net Chrome zinc.compuporter.net Zinc (mac book)


How do you recommend I go about fixing the mac so it talks to the Ubuntu box again, I a, refering to the sharing between the Ubuntu box and the Mac.
Google Linux is a Green Horns Best Friend (GHBF).
Windows = a 32 bit extensions to a 16 bit patch to an 8 bit operating system originally coded for a four bit processor written by 2-bit monopolistic software company founded by a .3-bit Harvard Drop out, who can't stand one respectable bit of competition.
If I believe something to be immoral a will not keep quite and let my voice of annoyance be heard loud and clear.

UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.

Are you talking about file sharing or printer sharing? For printer sharing on ubuntu you would need to configure cups to allow that. There may be a gui tool on ubuntu that simplifies matters. Regardless, there should be multiple howtos on configuring cups, starting the server, and opening ports in the firewall. Does samba have a printer sharing feature that does not use cups?
