Samba, Redhat 9.0 Windows XP; Windows 98 Binding

Hey everyone, I have Unbinded TCP/IP over "File and Printer Sharing
For Microsoft Network", and Unbinded TCP/IP over "Client for Microsoft
Network" too. I am currently using ipx/spx & netbeui binding for my
xp & 98 system; they work great and securedly, I've been to the GRC
Shieldsup site and checked; says it cant see my shares; and my
protocols are stealth, so I know I'm pretty secured; that goes for my
98 system too. Ok now for my major question(s) so how would I
bind/unbind ipx/spx on my Redhat linux 9 system, and how would
unbind/bind netbeui if it exist, that also goes with tcp/ip. Then last
how would I use Samba with my xp/98 system. I am behind a router.

Hi,


I'm not saying that it cannot be done. - Linux does have some ipx/spx
support. However, I have not seen it done.
IMHO, it will be far easier and you will encounter fewer problems if you set
it up in the normal way and then configure your router to drop MS Networking
packets. (TCP & UDP, 138 & 139 IIRC)
