c0mputerking's picture

Hello again all i finally got around to setting up a tkl appliance on my proxmox 2 server the appliance in question is a fileshare server.  However i do not see it in windows networking not really proficient with troubleshooting windows networking so alas i am forced to post here. Howwever i do not think it is a window issue but instead tkl hope it is something simple i missed? samba seems to start fine but i get lots of errors in the other samba related logs see below.

Error in samba.log

Just use the IP of the appliance in the same way you would browse straight to a Win computer (ie \\<ipaddress>\).
