Thanks for your quick reply Phillip....
I am afraid that didn't work. I even set the value to 34 which is even above
an NT4 server....but still nothing...:(

Hi Nikos!

Try using the "os level" option in the global section. Just start with a
value around 8 and go up until your clients are able to 'see' the servers:


  os level = 8

This option means how 'strong' a SMB Server should act on a network. So if
this value is set too low, other services run e.g. by clients will overlap
your samba service and you won't be able to see it from those clients.
I had the problem when stepping from Win98 to Win2k clients. Nothing was
changed on the server config but suddenly the machine was disappeared from
my network neighbourhood.
This is no guarantee that it works but it may help. Tell me of your

Greetings >>>> Philipp
