Im new to the List. I have 2 computers with Linux (one of them is the
server that has the Samba Server). From Linux I CAN enter to the windows
and linux computers, but from Windows I only can see the Windows

What could be happening? I add the users with smbpasswd -a user, from
the Windows computers I add the wins server and their correct password,
a copy of my smb.conf:


   workgroup = FAMILIA
   netbios name = servidor
   server string = "Servidor Linux"
   hosts allow = 192.168.1. 127.
   guest account = guest
   log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
   max log size = 0
   security = user
   encrypt passwords = yes
   smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
   unix password sync = Yes
   passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
   passwd chat = *New*password* %n\n *Retype*new*password* %n\n
   pam password change = yes
   obey pam restrictions = yes
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
   interfaces = 
   remote announce =
   domain master = yes 
   preferred master = yes
   wins support = yes

   comment = Archivos de Familia
   path = /home/familia/samba
   public = yes
   writable = yes
   read only = no
   printable = no
   guest ok = yes

Could some one help me? Thanks!
