Collectively, according to Yankee analyst DiDio, "individual corporate Linux, Windows and Unix servers experience three to five failures per server per year, resulting in 10.0 to 19.5 hours of annual downtime for each server." Beyond this, the results were revealing! shocking! earth-shaking! Er. Not really.

Filed under
Linux

In the spirit of all who chanced civil disobedience for their cause, this is offered as what NOT to do...under any circumstance.

Filed under
HowTos

This guide is intended for those using Suse 10.1 and Samba with the firewall (SuSEfirewall2) enabled. It applies to machines in workgroups only, not domains.

This guide was created from my attempts to make accessing all shares and printers on my Windows/Linux network work perfectly.
