Hi All

I have a working samba server on RH Linux 7.3 (samba v2.2.4). My shares and
printers can be connected and used by my W95, W98 and XP clients - no
problems there.

However, my Apple (Powerbook G4 running OSX 10.1.4) cannot connect using the
Connect To Server option:

The nmblookup -B MAC_MACHINE '*' command does not see the Apple Powerbook.

By the way, Appletalk to/fro the Linux server is working fine.

Any ideas?
