1. Network Neighbourhood in Samba network?
We have a network comprising a RedHat 7.0 Internet gateway, RedHat 6.0
File Server, 26 x Windows95 PCs, a Win98PC, an NT4 Server, an NT4
workstation and a Win2K workstation. Also attached are 2 x SCO
Openserver V Servers with some 40 x Wyse terminals attached.
The 2 x SCO boxes were on an IP range of 100.100.101.x and the rest
were on 193.2.0.x and the two network segments were joined by 2
Network cards in the NT Workstation. Samba is running on both the
RedHat boxes but not the SCO machines. Both the NT PCs are running
peer-to-peer with no domains configured and the common Workgroup is
All has been fine and we have been able to view the Windows Network
Neighbourhood with no problems. I could see the Linux and Win95/NT
machines and view the Samba shares. Telnetting into the SCO and Linux
boxes has been fine.
A decision was made to get all the computers on the same IP range and
so everything was moved to 192.168.0.x and the extra network card
removed from the NT box.
All is working fine again, except I cannot now see the windows Network
Neighbourhood. When I click on the NN icon on any Windows PC, it says
"Workgroup name not found". I can map drives OK and access all the
same functions with the one exception of not being able to browse the
I have upgraded both Linux boxes to the latest version of Samba for
each of them but it is still the same. I suspect that it may have
something to do with the master browser for the network, but I do not
know which machine that would be. I can start to disconnect PCs from
the network until NN comes back again and fault-find it that way, but
as the business runs 21+ hours per day it is dificult to just close
people down and shutdown the servers.
Does anyone have any idea why this could be happening?
If you could post your reply to both the newsgroup and to my email
address as well I would be most appreciative.
To reply, please remove the "zz" from my email address.
"On the side of the software box, in the 'System Requirements' section,
it said 'Requires Windows 2000 or better'. So I installed Linux."
