I am having a problem with some Windows 95 PC's .

I had Samba 2.0.5 installed on a Sun system with Solaris 6, and a local
network of PC's with W95 and W98, and everything was working fine.  I then
installed a new server with Solaris 8, and changed the IP addresses on the
network, and the W98 PC was fine as was one of the W95 PC's, but 2 W95Pc's
cannot see the Samba share, if I do a "Find computer" and enter the IP
address of the server it is not found, although the other W95 PC does find
it.  The 2 problem PC's can ping the server and can connect with the TUN
emulation software, so there is no problem with the network connection.   I
have upgraded to Samba 2.2.2 but this has not resolved it, I have also tried
re-installing Windows on one of the PC's to no avail.  As 2 of the PC's are
working OK I assume my Samba set up is correct.

Do you have any suggestions as to what might be causing the problem?
