I would like to sync/transfer files from my Mac and Z using a samba shared folder and would like to do this over wi-fi. Next I will try to use ZMacSync over WiFi.

So far I can get my Z to recognize my CF WiFi card and I can pick up an IP address from my DHCP server. I connect to my DHCP server thru an wifi AP that is hardwired to the DHCP server.
I can surf the web, get email and connect to my Mac's Personal Web Server.

But I can not connect from my Mac to the Z be it with Samba or FTP.

So my questions are (be aware that I don't know anything about Linux):

1. How can I check if Samba is running?
2. Do I need to have a fix IP address or can I use a dynamic one as I'm doing currently?

I found an article in ZUG which has a listing with a lot of commands and adjustments to configure Samba over WiFi - is all that programming necessary?

Thanks in advance!
