I helped to configure a system where one of my collague is teaching.
We installed Samba, just like thousand times. Added the neccessary
options and values to the configuration file. But it didn't seem to
work. The server looked up in the network neighbourhood but when
somebody tried to connect to it, the NTs said, they couldn't find the
share on the network. OK, I lost all my experience and mind, so try to
use SWAT - I never had to use it before. OK, it edited the file. It
must be good. But no, it didn't work. Any ideas? All of the machines
responses to ping, the clients can ping the server, they see the server
in the network neighbourhood and the clients can connect to each others
ps.: yes, the samba is the preferred and local master, domain logons
are supported, thats the master browser, wins support is set to yes.
