I've seen a couple of people post this problem, but I've never seen an
answer, and now it's happenning to me.

I run Solaris 2.5.1, and samba-1.9.17p1.

Every so often a pc can look in the network neighborhood and the samba
server just isn't there, though you can still map a network drive by
using a UNC pathway:


so the share is still out there but the server dissapears every so

Any clues would be much appreciated.


ps What is the equiv of samba for macintoshes if there is one??
