I've found these errors in my log.smbd file:

Invalid snum 17 for admin
1998/12/03 10:35:48 xxxxxx (xx.xx.xx.xx) couldn't find service admin

This occurs when attempting to connect to a share from a Win95 system.

This is the share definition from smb.conf:

        available = no
        browsable = no
        read only = yes
        write list = pc
        fake oplocks = yes
        oplocks = no
        locking = no
        share modes = no

There are quite a few other shares on the server that are configured
exactly the same as this one, and those are accessible.  Any would
be helpfull.
