I am running a samba server on a Linux 2.2.17 server and I cannot get
more than one person logged in at the same time apparently.
The server is located on a certain subnet, and I am accessing it from
another subnet through a masq tunnel.
The first person manage to do a net use from NT but the one that tries to
use the share after will get a 'Remote system not available'

Here is what I get from the logs :

2000/12/08 15:30:00, 1] smbd/files.c:file_init(216)
