Question Can't see Fedora box from Windows XP box.

I have a Fedora Core 5 box on my Windows network now, and it can see and access windows files and folders. The windows machine can NOT see the fedora box. I followed the Perfect Setup. I'm still trying to learn ispConfig and get my "main" webpage up, but that's an entirely different issue. I'm reading the manuals and will post if I have problems with that... BUT...

How do i share the Linux file system with the rest of the network, but still make sure is protected from the internet hacks?

What are you trying to share? Storage space? You could create a user called storage on the new machine, and then have your LAN access it via an FTP client or SFTP. A couple of years ago I came across a nice client called winscp for Windows machines:

Keep in mind I'm a major newbie to *nix systems...

I tried connecting via ftp with filezilla using the ip address of the box (192.168.0.100) to upload my webpages for my main domain. I wanted to have my page up before I went "live". This is the response:

Status: Connecting to 192.168.0.100 ...
Status: Connected with 192.168.0.100. Waiting for welcome message...
Response: 220 FTP Server ready.
Command: USER root
Response: 331 Password required for root.
Command: PASS ********
Response: 530 Login incorrect.
Error: Unable to connect!

I know it's the correct password since I had just logged into the box as root. Somehow, somewhere, it looks as if I don't have the correct username and/or password. I even tried logging in as "admin" for the main user of ispConfig.

I CAN login to ipConfig via https://192.168.0.100:100:81 so I tried ftps://192.168.0.100 and the response:

Status: Connecting to 192.168.0.100 ...
Status: Connected with 192.168.0.100, negotiating SSL connection...
Error: Can't establish SSL connection
Error: Disconnected from server
Error: Unable to connect!

I'm a nobb too.

Keep in mind that FTP sends username/password in clear text, and your FTP daemon may not allow root to loging remotely. In fact, you can set up the SSH daemon to also disallow root login. this is a good thing.

How about making a new user and loggin in as this user instead of root?

/usr/sbin/useradd newUser

passwd newUser
<- you are prompted twice for the password for newUser

You should try the winscp client I linked to above. It has drag and drop capability, and you can even edit the files on your server through this client.

And SFTP does not send username/password in plain text.

FTP: File Transfer Protocol
SFTP: Secure Fire Tansfer Protocol

I don't think it'll work since my windows box doesn't see my fedora box. I'm sure it has to do with a setting about file sharing or something with the settings, I'm just not sure where they are, what they SHOULD be running ispConfig, and if I can change them or not.

I'm new to Fedora (v.5) too and have the self same problem, except that I can see the Linux computer on my two WinXP computers, and vice versa. I can access and copy the Windows shared files from Linux, but the Linux machine rejects any attempt to do likewise from Windows. All the machines are connected through a US Robotics router and to the Internet through a single modem.
Any thoughts anyone on what Fedora firewall settings will allow access by the other computers on the network?

What's in the logs on the Linux system when this happens?
