Ask it. :) It would be in your smb.conf file. I have a page on samba at http://home.nyc.rr.com/computertaijutsu/samba.html It mentions using -I as in IP address. You could use something like mount -t smbfs -I 192.168.1.10 //firstname.lastname@example.org/shared_directory /fileserver email@example.com is her username on the samba server's name. That name would actually be the hostname, as long as the client machine knows the hostname--it should be in the client machine's /etc/hosts (or lmhosts on Windows--however, the idea is that the server machine knows its owns name. So the server machine should have an entry in /etc/hosts like 192.168.1.10 fileserver.dave_net.net fileserver -- Scott Robbins PGP keyID EB3467D6 ( 1B48 077D 66F6 9DB0 FDC2 A409 FA54 EB34 67D6 ) gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys EB3467D6 Angelus: No weapons... no friends... no hope.
