Hi, my name is Thomas Hansen, and I'm new to this list.

I've configurated Samba 2.0.4b no my Linux server(RH 6.2). I've got a
sub-network of 5 W95 machines (brahms, mozart, kodaly, copland and and the Linux Server (
The Workgroup is MUSICA. BACH is configured as WINS server, security level
set to user, with plain-text passwords (no encryption). Netbios name is
set to BACH authenticates user logons on all machines, and all
can access the shares on the server. All these things work perfectly.

The problems:

1 - When I try to create a share on W95 machines, it asks me to choose the
who will have permission to access it. When I click on the "Add" button,
however, it answers me: "It isn't possible to see the users list at this
Try again later".   

2 - When  I try to connect to a W95 machine the linux server (with
it answers:

# smbclient //mozart/c
Added interface ip=143.107.985.90 bcast= nmask=
session setup failed: ERRDOS - 1311

If I try to connect to a W95 machine from another, the answer is:
 \\Copland is not accessible.

There isn't any server available to start the logon request.

Finally, if I try to connect to a W95 from another, with the NET command:
C:\> net view \\copland

Error # 1311:
There isn't any server available to receive the logon request.

The only thing that works from the server to the W95 machines is the
-L command, which returns me the name of the shares configured on the W95
machines. Any try to connect to these shares, both from smb machines and
ones, doen't work.

Could anybody help me? I'm attaching my smb.conf file, in case it helps...
