I'm trying in vain to reach DSL box from another computer.
I try samba and ssh. All the same. The fact that the output is the same for both might suggest that there is sth wrong with my DSL settings. What should I verify?
root@slack_server:~# smbclient -L //192.168.1.5
Error connecting to 192.168.1.5 (Connection refused)
Connection to 192.168.1.5 failed
root@slack_server:~# ssh 192.168.1.5
ssh: connect to host 192.168.1.5 port 22: Connection refused

In the case of samba, do you have samba installed and configured on dsl?

I'll go to see about ssh and as to samba
it's because on dsl samba should be started under root not under user. When started under root the connection is available
