Hello, I have a Samba server running under linux, where i store my image, and that works well if the folder is fully public. But, if i want to restrict the access to my client computer's IP, Acronis does not see anymore the network shared folder.. I'm using the bootable Acronis CD. The same computer, under Windows, does see this folder.. Here are the bare figures and stuff, if that can help : Server : Linux (Fedora Core 5, kernel 2.6.15-1) with samba (3.0.21b-2), IP address 192.168.0.101. Client : Acronis b3677, with bootable CD, IP address 192.168.0.1. Samba config file : [acronisTest1] comment = This folder is seen by Acronis bootable CD browseable = yes path = /fast/acronisTest1 writable = no public = yes [acronisTest2] comment = This folder is NOT seen by Acronis bootable CD browseable = yes path = /fast/acronisTest2 writable = no public = yes hosts allow = 192.168.0.1 [acronisTest3] comment = This folder is NOT seen by Acronis bootable CD browseable = yes path = /fast/acronis_%I public = yes %I means client IP address; the client should therefore access the "/fast/acronis_192.168.0.1/" linux directory. Of course, those 3 folders are correctly "seen" from the same client with Windows XP. Can you help me on this ??
