I am trying to connect a Win 95 OSR2 machine to our Samba 2.0.6 server.
The Samba server doesn't show up in the Network Neighborhood (they are
on the same subnet and in the same workgroup) but other Windows machines
were showing up. Also, the Samba server shows up fine on other
machines. I noticed that Client for Netware was installed and so was the
NetBeui protocol and IPX/SPX. This machine didn't need Netware so I
deleted everything except Client for Microsoft Networks and TCP/IP.
When I rebooted nothing showed up in the Network Neighborhood. I added
NetBEUI back in and the computers showed up again but still no Samba
server (Samba doesn't do NetBEUI).
More digging in TCP/IP and I found that the NetBIOS over TCP/IP check
box was both unchecked and greyed out.
So, it looks like NetBIOS is set up to work only with NetBEUI, for some
Does anyone know why this would be greyed out or how I can re-enable
it? I have tried deleting TCP/IP altogether, rebooting, installing
TCP/IP, and Client for Microsoft Networking, and rebooting again but
this didn't do the trick.
