Not a surprise. Many places firewall the smb relevant ports. To
determine if that's true, try using "nmap -p 139,445 <remote-host>" to
see if the ports in question are actually filtered.

I suspect that your network admins take a different -- and most
likely, dim -- dim...

I can please only one person per day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow
isn't looking good, either.
I am BOFH. Resistance is futile. Your network will be assimilated.
We are on a nt server, running SBS 4.0. The workstations are also NT.
There are 5 users connected to the server. ONLY one workstations is
having problems receiving/sending Internet Email. We are not using
Exchange for routing - we have pop3 accounts and the clients are
checking/logging into the mail servers by themselves. The workstation
that's having trouble says that it cannot find the particular mail
server - to check the name and try again. The settings are correct - I
was able to download the messages to a laptop computer.
I have already: restarted the workstation and file server,
uninstall/reinstall outlook, tried using Outlook Express (doesn't work
either), checked my TCP/IP setting. Everything seems to be working the
way it should be.
I spent lots of time on the phone with people with have no clue. They
seem to think it's the proxy server.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated!
