SMB CONNECT TO REMOTE NETWORK?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My IP range is 192.168.101.xxx

The remote computer is 192.168.102.xxx

I have added a route to the other network so I can now ping the remote
machine.

I am trying to connect using the following command
smb://paul@192.168.102.xxx/c

However this does not work. Do I need to use the machines name, if so I
assume I need to put it into a hosts file somewhere. If this is the case
please would someone please post clear instructions to do this.

You cannot connect to a SMB server using its IP address. You must use: smb://server_name/share_name

And I think SMB is also non-routable so it wont go through any routers you have. Well at least thats how it is over NetBEUI. Dunno about TCP/IP.

I think you need a WINS server or something to route SMB. Cant remember that part.

hope thats helpfull.
