  First of all get rid of the hosts allow directive.  After you get
everything working than you should put in security directives.

  Hello all, I'm having a problem with browsing, I have SAMBA setup on a
small home network, on the windows clients I can see the Samba server in the
network neighborhood but if I try to connect or use "net view" or "net use"
I get a error 53 the computer name specified in the network path cannot be
located.  I can browse to the two windows clients on the network just not
the Samba server, I have also added the Samba server to the LMHOSTS file but
this did not help.  Any ideas?
