    hello sorry for intromission but help me...
    I premise that they are not an expert of Suse Linux but not even of
    Linux, I have installed two years ago approximately near a customer a
    file server linux suse 9 and qualified samba and all it worked and it
    works well.

    Some month my customer has opened a office in an other state and they
    must use the file server is via VPN. No problem I have already made
    other VPN hardware with SO Microsoft using router/Zyxel firewall.

    Unfortunately I don't succeed to see and to ping from the remote
    office the server linux while but I see the other pc with windows XP
    and w2k. I have tried to add in the remote rows of config of samba the
    IP on label "interface= /255 /255
    th0" and disabled the firewall on the server but nothing.

    However I ping the remote pc on the server linux!!!

    You have some idea of as I would have to make in order to use the
    server in remote.

    I do not want absolutely to make to pass the customer to Microsoft, as
    I have not never had problems from two years to this part.

    Thanks to all for the help, bye.

    P.S. sorry for my english :-/
