I get the following error message when double-clicking on the samba server 

"\\Sever not accessible. No Service is operating at the destination network 
endpoint of the remote system."

Also, the nmblookup works for other hosts, but fails when querying the 
server itself; i.e nmblookup <server> returns a name-query failed to find 
<server> (query on broadcast address

Here is my smb.conf file:

  Global parameters
         workgroup = Workgroup
         netbios name = SERVER
         server string = Linux_Server
