I have (the latest) Samba installed and have two problems that I can't
seem to solve.
First, my setup: Machine 1 is linux/samba machine. Machine 2 is Win
95 and Machine 3 is WfWG 3.11 with TCP/IP. They connect with
ethernet. All machines can ping each other and the other TCP stuff
Machines 2 and 3 can mount each other's drives and printers fine.
Machine 2 can mount the Samba shares but only after I run the "Find
Computer" tool. It doesn't appear in the Network Neighborhood with
the other machines.
I used smbclient to verify that Machine 1 can mount look at the shares
on all three machines and the Workgroup name is the same.
I was able to drag a shortcut into network neightborhood but that's
not the same as actually being there.
A possibly related problem is machine 3, the Win 3.11 one, cannot see
the samba shares at all. The server doesn't appear.
Is there some Samba option that I don't have enabled? With the Win 95
machine it's only annoying not having it in the Neighborhood but it is
entirely unusable from machine 3. This I really need to fix.
BTW: One further problem I haven't looked at too closely: All the
mounted shares are done as "pcguest" and not as the username logged in
to win 95. I have the same username/password on both machines. Is
there a Win 95 option somewhere I need to change?
