I can view the workgroups on the winxp machine but when I try to open the
[Samba] I get not accessable or don't have permission

I went through that again as per your suggestions and made changes so I
think it is specific.

That is pretty much what I am shooting for on the XP machine I have
printers, scanner, dvd player, digital camera etc.

All I get is failure to connect for both telnet and ftp I have gFTP

returns telnet-0.17-25 and ftp-0.17-17
Some of the things you suggest with sudo work straight out but others won't
work no matter what I try.

what is the command for checking iptables?
