"Path not accessible" from NT but not W95

The problem appears to be IP resolution, which means your WINS setup has problems. Check if your smb.conf file on the samba box has a : wins server=ip.address.of.wins.server line. And then restart nmbd. Does nmblookup from subnet C for the PDC work?

    a.. I have a SAMBA server on subnet A, the PDC and WINS on subnet B,  clients on subnet C. 
    b.. SAMBA server is configured for remote announce to the PDC on subnet B 
    c.. nmblookup of the SAMBA server from subnet A resolves but nmblookup from subnet C does not 
    d.. all clients (W95, NT, and UNIX) on subnet C can see the SAMBA server (via network neighborhood for W95 and NT, ping for UNIX) 
    e.. W95 clients can access the SAMBA server by double clicking the server in the network neighborhood or entering the UNC in the run box 
    f.. NT clients receive "Path not Accessible" when double clicking the SAMBA server in the network neighborhood or using the UNC path 
    g.. NT clients can access SAMBA by using \\IP address\sharename 
  My thought is that the NT clients are failing because they require an authenticated RPC channel to communicate.  However, my attempts to join the domain (yes, I followed the directions) have failed and I cannot test this assumption.  I am using Samba 2.0.5a on Solaris 2.6.   Any suggestions would be appreciated.
