I am new to linux. Can anyone tell me how to access a windows machine from Linux. Well I have configured samba in linux to be accessed from windows machine, and it is workig perfectly. Please help to access the linux machine from a windows machine.
I'm not quite sure what you are asking here. In one part you ask how to access a Windows machine from Linux, then you ask how to access a Linux machine from Windows. Which one do you want, and what do you already have working?
There may be some other way of doing this, but the way i know of is to get Win4Lin. It lets you run windows inside linux. It shows up as just another application. And everything runs faster then it usually does on a windows machine. But like i said, theres probably some way to get it working without buying Win4Lin.

I think you need to check out something called smbfs (it may come included with SAMBA). It lets you mount remote SMB drives using "mount" just like any other fileing system (ext2, nfs, FAT etc.).
