Samba don't work!!

Hello. I have a Linux box working as a Samba server on a Win95 network,
and I have some troubles related with nmbd process.

First, I can't resolve NetBios names correctly. When I execute nmblookup
to resolve some name, it answers with a "name_query failed" error.

Second, Windows machines can't validate passwords over Linux box. When a
Win95 box goes up and asks for an username, it answer that it can found
a server where validate the password.

Third, Windows network browse windows can't see Linux box. When you
browse the network from one Win95 box, Linux box don't appear on this

Obiusly, I read all the docs that come with Samba, and I configure the
Linux box to work as a wins server, enable the master browser options,

This is a copy of my smb.conf file (global section only):

   security = user
   protocol = NT1
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY
   socket address =
   encrypt passwords = no
   wins support = yes
   domain logons = yes
   domain master = yes
   domain sid = S-1-5-21-123-456-789-123
   local master = yes
   preferred master = yes
   os level = 33
   logon  script = %U.bat
   passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
   server string = Servidor SMB de Vesatec
   hosts allow = 10.0.
   browseable = yes
   browse list = yes
   case sensitive = no
   preserve case = yes
   workgroup = OLIMPO
   interfaces =
   dead time = 10
   printing = bsd
   printcap name = /etc/printcap
   print command = /usr/bin/lpr -r -P%p %s
   lpq command = /usr/bin/lpq -P%p
   lprm command = /usr/bin/lprm -P%p %j
   load printers = yes
   guest account = ftp
   log file = /usr/local/samba/log.%m
   lock directory = /usr/local/samba/var/locks
   share modes = yes

The IP address of the server is:, and the netmask at the
network is

Any ideas?
