    Samba issues


    i have three computers networked together, let's call them A (SuSE 9.2 with Samba server configured), B (XP) and C (XP).

    B and C can see each other and share files.

    C can see A, can access shared directories and vice versa.

    From A, when clicking on the 'Browse Network->Windows Network' icon i get a "No Network found error" but can mount drives from B and C.

    B can see A in its Workgroup but cannot access any of the shares.

    i've tried every tutorial i can find and can't get this to work. i can't figure out why one XP machine can access the Samba share but another can't.

    Ideas?


    NB. Oddly when running a SuSE 9.2 Live CD the above 'Windows Network' error doesn't occur.

    Yeah, there're pings-a-go-go. i'm not at my machine but i'm pretty sure the the smb:// idea gives a 'Service Name Unavailable' error.

    Couldn't you just make an icon on the desktop linking to the url smb://ip.of.B ? I know this isn't the way w\you want it - you wan to be able to go via 'Browse Network->Windows Network', and I'm nos sure what is wrong with that? waybe some weird firewall setting on B? By linking B on the desktop you have basicly the same thing I think.
