Are you using 6.0 Std. or Light?
Do you want to read files on the XP machine, the VL machine, or both?

The must basic configuration is to connect both your system in a networked environment either using switch or router. Setup the IP either with DHCP or static. Enable sharing for your windows system or configure samba for your linux system.

Adding a few details, how about we do one thing at the time, starting with accessing your XP box from VL?   Wink

I am unfamiliar with how XFCE handles samba browsing, but we have a simple script that does the job in VL Light.
I put together an unofficial (no warranty) package with the modifications.

First, use gslapt and make sure the packages "samba" and "bind" are installed. Next, download this package:
http://www.cincinnatix.com/vectorlinux/nightflier/vlsmbmnt-fix.tlz

Install it using the command line, as root, with the command "installpkg vlsmbnt-fix.tlz". You should get a new program on the menu in the Network section called "Windows networking". Let us know how it works for you.

The Konqeror file manager can see Windows shares over a network. The only thing you have to do is make sure you are on the Windows workgroup. I think you can get Konqueror without installing all of KDE but I'm not sure which packages that would be. Anybody else know something about this? I saw this mentioned in another thread once.

Please tell us what steps you have taken so far. Right now, just concentrate on seeing your XP box from the VL machine.

I assumed that your XP and VL is already in a network enviroment and there is share folder enable in your XP.

1. type smbclient -L xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (put the IP or the hostname of your XP system) -U username in your linux console/terminal. Key in the password afterward if it require it.

2. Use the mount command as follows:
# mount -t cifs //ntserver/download -o username=xxx,password=xxx /mnt/xxx

3. Use following command if you are using Old version such as RHEL <=4 or Debian <= 3:
# mount -t smbfs -o username=xxx,password=xxx //ntserver/download /mnt/xxx

PS: If you didn't set access control on your XP share folder there is no need to specify the username and password

What hata has suggested will mount your remote xp share to your local VL system.  By 'mount' I just mean it will create a direct link to that network share so that you can access the data.  Once you've successfully mounted the remote XP share you will be able to 'access XP' via the location where you mounted the share.  Your mount point (i.e. location) is indicated by the '/mnt/xxx' location.  I would suggest you either: 1) use the /mnt/win directory, 2) use the /mnt/tmp directory, or 3) create a new directory in /mnt and use that directory.  For simplicities sake, try just using '/mnt/win' since it already exists and is a somewhat logical location to use.

By the way, you will need to adjust #2 to meet your network topography.

//ntserver = will be your actual XP computer name (e.g. //Gekky29_XP)
/download = will be an actual share on your XP computer (e.g. C_Drive)
username =  will be a valid username on your XP computer
password = will be the password for the username above
/mnt/xxx = will be the actual location to mount your XP share (e.g. /mnt/win)

Example) mount -t cifs //Gekky29_XP/C_Drive -o username=XPuser,password=XPpass /mnt/win

If the mount is successful then you should be able to browse the mount point and see your XP data (ls -al /mnt/win).

The problem is probably that the 'names' I used are incorrect. I was just guessing those names to provide a more personal example, however I think you took them to be literal.

Please perform step #1 and post the output.  We can then help you with a specific example that's relevant to your system.

smbclient -L xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -U username
(put the IP address of your XP system; replace xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx with your XP IP address)

Your english is fine. I understand what you say just fine.
