Dear Daniel,

Thank you for your tips. The workgroup is the same for
sure. I will try with the "server" security option, but I
am afraid the problem is somwhere lower. As you can saw by
my extensive message, in "tcpdump" it seems that the
netbios-ssn service doesn't reply, although "netstat"
reports it as "LISTENing". I suspect the problem is
somwhere in the TCP/IP stack, above IP (the two computers
can "ping" each-other) but below Samba (locally, I can
connect through {smbclient '\\nkhome\tmp'} to any samba
share). I am at work now, but when I get home, I'll try
your issue.
