2.4.2 Setting Up Windows XP Computers
Although Windows XP is very similar to Windows 2000, it has a very different
user interface, and there are a number of subtle differences. For example,
getting to the Control Panel is different than in any previous version of
Windows—one must click the Control Panel item from the Start menu (there is
CoolMax USA
no Settings item in the Start menu in XP). By default, XP will display the
Control Panel in Category View mode. If you see this, click the Switch to
Classic View item in the upper-left corner of the window. All of our directions
are for using the Control Panel in Classic View mode.
You should perform the following steps as the Administrator or another user in
the Administrators group.
Networking Components
Go to the Control Panel and double-click the Network and Dial-up Connections
icon. You should see at least one Local Area Connection icon. If there is more
than one, identify the one that corresponds to the network adapter that is
connected to your Samba network. Right-click the Local Area Connection icon
and click the Properties button. (Or double-click the Local Area Connection
icon and then click the Properties button in the dialog box that comes up.) You
should now be looking at the Local Area Connection Properties dialog box, as
shown in bellow
You should see at least the following two components:
Client for Microsoft Networks
CoolMax USA
Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
If you do not see either Client for Microsoft Networks or Internet Protocol
(TCP/IP) in your list, you will need to add them. For either, the method is to
click the Install... button, click the type of component (Client or Protocol), and
then click the Add... button. Next, click the component you want to add, and
click the OK button. You should see the component added to the list with the
Configuring TCP/IP
Now click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and then click Properties to open the
Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties dialog box, shown in bellow
If you are using DHCP on your network to assign IP addresses dynamically,
select the "Obtain IP address automatically" radio button. Otherwise, select the
"Use the following address:" radio button, and fill in the computer's IP address
and netmask in the spaces provided. You or your network manager should
have selected an address for the client on the same subnet (LAN) as the
Samba server. For example, if the server's address is and its
network mask is, you might use the address (if it
is available) along with the same netmask. You can also fill in the IP address of
the default gateway.
CoolMax USA
Computer and Workgroup Names
From the Control Panel, double-click the System icon to open the System
Properties dialog box. Click the Computer Name tab, and your System
Properties dialog box will look similar to:
To give your system computer a name and a workgroup, click the Change...
button, which will bring up the Computer Name Changes dialog box, as in
You need to identify your computer with a name and change the workgroup to
CoolMax USA
the one you specified in the web page of your Samba server. Don't worry that
Windows forces the workgroup to be all capital letters; it's smart enough to
figure out what you mean when it connects to the network.
Connecting to the Samba Server
Now for the big moment. Your Samba server is running, and you have set up
your Windows XP client to communicate with it. In the Start menu, select My
Computer to open the My Computer window. Click My Network Places, in the
Other Places box in the left part of the window. You should see a folder icon for
the test directory, as shown in bellow
Now click View workgroup computers in the Network Tasks box at the left of
the window. You should see your Samba server listed as a member of the
workgroup. Double-click its icon, and you will see a window that looks like
If you don't see the server listed in the workgroup, don't panic. Select Run...
from the Start menu. A dialog box appears that allows you to type the name of
your server and its share directory in Windows format. For example, you would
enter \\toltec\test, as shown in bellow, and use your server's hostname instead
CoolMax USA
of "Toltec".
If it works, congratulations! Try copying files to and from the server by dragging
their icons to and from the Samba server's test folder. You might be pleasantly
surprised how seamlessly everything works.
2.5 FTP server
File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a network protocol used to transfer data from
one computer to another through a network, such as over the Internet.
FTP is a file transfer protocol for exchanging files over any TCP/IP based network to
manipulate files on another computer on that network regardless of which operating
systems are involved (if the computers permit FTP access).
The objectives of FTP, as outlined by its RFC, are:
1. To promote sharing of files (computer programs and/or data).
2. To encourage indirect or implicit use of remote computers.
3. To shield a user from variations in file storage systems among different
4. To transfer data reliably, and efficiently
