    Hi All,

    My Server win 2003 setup Printer HP 1010 and share for all user by Print Server Device ( X-Net Print Server USB 1 Port ).

    In Windows, I'm only do connecto to my server \\, I'll see the Printer then just right click and chose connect.

    In PCLinuxOS, I don't know how to connect to server and connect to printer.

    Also I can not connect to file server at \\ I don't know how to use source file shared by win 2003.

    I hope anyone can show me how to do, ( please show detail )

    I want to say thanks you very much to all.

    Did you browse the network environment in PCLinuxOS? Do you see your server and printer there?

    My network work on Workgroup, and I name it AMPCGROUP.

    When I browse netowork from PCLOS to Windows 2003, I can see "Windows Networks" then continue browse I can see "AMPCGROUP" + "MSHOME", but if I continue browse AMPCGROUP, nothing happen, nothing appear then message "Can not show all content for this network...."

    I wonder is there have anyway easy to browse network, file share and connect printer... on windows 2003 ?

    This error may be hostname, NetBIOS name, workgroup name or somthing on PCLinusOS? Have you ever seen this Falko?
