    i have samba installed, everything was working before, I could share files between linux and windows. After starting samba on my Linux machine, I tried to access the Network Servers area and I get this error:

    "Couldnt displa "smb:///", because Nautilus cannot contact the SMB master browser.
    Check that an SMB server is running in the local network"

    please note that i had restarted samba over and over again....
    "service smb restart" and I got a host of "ok's"

    what could be the problem
    Toks
    please send a replay with an equiation for this problem

    thank you
