Subject: Re: Login Win95 into NT server through SAMBA

Well, the login works like a charm, I've even managed to map the share on 
the NT server to run the login script through SAMBA - that was a mind 
bender. All of my TCP/IP is working fine, and I can browse the network and 
access shares on other Win9x/NT machines on the network.

What ISN'T working is other people trying to see me on the Network 
Neighborhood and accessing my shared printer and directories on my win98se 
machine. I'm not visible on the Network Neighborhood, and, the few times 
I've managed to BECOME visible, no shares show up.

Now, form my SAMBA machine, if I run "smbclient -L localhost", I see the 
entire network AND my Win9x machine.
Running "smbclient -L ouellep" [ouellep = my win9x machine], I can see my 
shares no problems.

I've included the content of my current smb.conf below - might help you to 
tell me what I missed/mucked up:
