Exclamation Problem with network in Fedora 16

Hello, I'm new in these forums and I'm here because I just can't find anything that solves this problem...

The thing is, that anything I do, any tutorial and any guide I've seen so far, doesn't simply help to get this thing to work...

I even followed the one posted here (for Fedora 15) but without any luck...

My question is: is there any guide, walkthrough or anything about correctly configuring a network with Fedora 16?

I can't even see my own host in the Network with Nautilus...

Or at least had anyone got this working with Fedora 16?

Thanks!

Re: Problem with network in Fedora 16

Okay, I've got this working but, I can't see any Windows box on my Fedora nor my Fedora on my Windows :s

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Not exactly sure what it is you're trying to accomplish. Are you wanting a share with Windows for files?

Samba will handle the "Windows" side of this in Fedora. Don't forget that when you get Samba installed & running that you'll have to add you users to it (the ones to whom you wish to share your folders/files).

FWIW I haven't had much success with network browsing, however, I can access known shares without much trouble.

Re: Problem with network in Fedora 16

Ahh - hadn't thought of that (browsing thru Windows folders from Fedora). My machines only run Windows when TurboTax season is here and there is little or no reason for me to browse them. Heck, I may not even have that part set up! But they can browse much of my Fedora server and network from Windows, as can the Windows machine I bring in to fix/debug.

Re: Problem with network in Fedora 16

Sorry for reviving this... I've got this working just in case someone wondered: it was because of my router and some ports blocked in my fedora's firewall
