I happened to see this this morning:


    I can ping my Samba server from Windows, but I cannot ping my
    Windows machine from the Samba server.\x{201D}

    Answer: The Windows machine was at IP Address with
    netmask, the Samba server (Linux) was at IP Address with netmask The machines were on a
    local network with no external connections.

    Due to inconsistent netmasks, the Windows machine was on network, while the Samba server was on network
    logically a different network.

Was this the problem?
