Due to my problem with the setting of the Network Location of the Host-Only-Adapter from Sun's Virtual Box, I was toying around with the networkdevive itself.
Found the option "Activate Netbios over TCP/IP"
I thought I knew that one, so I turned it on an hurray, I had access to samba running on the linux running on the Virtual Box.
So I'm confused, what is the difference between homegroup and Netbios?
Is Homegroup some sort of mutual access without proving credentials?
You are in my homegroup so I trust you with all I got in my share and I'm willing to access your share as well?
Whereas netbios is only a one-way-access,involving authentication?
Thanks for moving.
