Regarding my earlier message (attached), the actual problem appears
to be that regardless of the policy settings (even removing CONFIG.POL
on the server!), I can't add File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft
Networks as a client service on the Win95 client computer!
How can I re-enable this?

Subject: Can't get Win95 to share after using policy
I set up system policies on our lab machines here, all of which
run Win 95 against Samba 1.9.18p10 on Linux 2.0.35. Each machine
has an entry in the CONFIG.POL. Originally, all the machine
entries disallowed File/print Sharing (Users shouldn't be able
to create new shares of any kind).
However, *one* computer needs to be able to share its printer.
So, I edited the policy file to turn sharing on again for that
one computer. I placed the new CONFIG.POL back in the /netlogon
however, the Win 95 computer won't give me back the
File and Printer Sharing... button in the Network Control
How can I get it back?
