Try: hosts allow = 127.0.0.1 192.168.122.0/24 >> if you want grant access to 192.168.122.1 - x.x.x.245, the whole range.

The .0 on the IP-address indicates the Network and /24 (255.255.255.0) the sub-net.

Still the same
i think Samba Server Is working but Windows Can’t Connect to it for some reason
Tried to connect to Samba through Nautilus from the same system and it worked
Windows Saying \192.168.122.1\ Is there but Can’t connect Maybe because a firewall blocking it
i configured SElinux also tried to set it to Premissive but nothing changed

hosts allow = 127.0.0.1 192.168.122.0/24 192.168.1.0/24

Try to to add both sub-nets to host allowed (192.168.122.0/24 192.168.1.0/24).

By the way, Samba is installed on the host F35, right ? And you want to access with Win10 where is a guest on libvirt (Getting started with virtualization :: Fedora Docs) ?

If, after the change you still have problems, you need to give us information’s as:

  1. ifconfig from the host where vitalization runs
  2. ipconfig -a from the window10 guest
  3. and from the virtualization virsh list -all

Still Can’t connect

Yes that’s what i’m trying to do

Finally it’s working.

Thanks
