Browsing Problems

I installed Samba 2.0 on my OSF 4.0D server a couple of days ago, and
connecting to shares works just fine.

However, browsing the server does not seem to work.

We have a network with mostly NT 4.0 clients, plus some Win95.

Network Neighborhood on an NT client shows the server; double-clicking it
produces the error message "RPC Error".

Here is the GLOBAL section from my smb.conf:

        workgroup = Alcatel
        netbios name = Atunfs
        server string = ATUNFS Samba Server
        interfaces =
        bind interfaces only
        security = domain
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        password server = attdcp attnt1 attnt2 attnt3
        username map = /usr/local/samba/lib/smbusers
        password level = 9
        username level = 9
        log level = 5
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 50
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY
        printcap name = /etc/printcap
        local master = No
        wins support = Yes
        printing = bsd
        case sensitive = Yes
        guest account = nobody
        browseable = Yes

Any help would be appreciated.
