Hi... I've had this problem for quite some time but had a work around but
I've never been able to understand why this is happening.
I have three machines, one running Windows, and the other two using Linux.
One of the linux machines is a file server using SMB all the time, and the
other is used mainly as a gateway to the internet. I've never been able to
see the name in Network Neighborhood.
If I start up SMB on the one running as a gateway, I can see the name in
Win95. If I run smbclient to show the shares on the gateway, I see the
Win95 and itself under server. If I run smbclient to show the list of
shares on the fileserver, it only sees itself and the Win95 under server.
The Win95 is the browse master also, and both linux boxes are setup with the
If anybody has any suggestions, it would be appreciated.
