the reason so resending...]


Win7 PC as client
Linux as server running samba 3.5.8

When I try to map the share on Win7 PC, I do see the icon for the
share but when I double-click on it, I get error message saying

Y:\ is not accessible
The specified network name is no longer available.

Following is snip from wireshark...
Win7_PC --> Linux: Session Setup AndX Request, NTLMSSP_NEGOTIATE
Linux -> Win7 : Session Setup Andx Response: NTLMSS_CHALLENGE, Error
Win7_PC --> Linux: Session Setup AndX Request: User: Win7_PC\test
Linux -> Win7 : Session Setup Andx Response:
Win7_PC --> Linux: Tree Connect AndX Request, Path: \\\RAID
Linux -> Win7_PC: Tree Connect AndX Response
Win7_PC --> Linux: NT Create AndX Request, PAth: \

I can ping the PC - TCP connectivity looks OK.

Could someone please advisewhat could be going wrong.

Thanks in advance,
