7 box, DAFFY. I can telnet to DAFFY.  Using the NT Explorer I can see the
Samba server but when I try to access it I get the message "\\DAFFY is not
accessible, network path not found".

When using the command line the error looks like this (note that the share

E:\>net use h: \\daffy\samba * /USER:dirk
Type the password for \\daffy\samba:
System error 53 has occurred.

The network path was not found.

The configuration looks like this:
NT----PPTP---NT/RAS-----RH 7/ Samba

The local configuration NT-----RH 7/ Samba works fine.

Is this related to different protocols that are used (NetBIOS, PPTP, TCP/IP)
in combination with the RAS-device?

Well, my setup is:

Win95----PPTP---InterJet----Debian (what is Linux 7? You mean RedHat 7?)

I can virtual network just fine from my Win95 box at home, then telnet
to my Debian Linux box, or whatever else I want to do.

But I don't have much need to do Samba stuff per se from there.  What
*exactly* are you trying to do?  Then maybe I can try it out.
