No .. there's no firewall. The samba server is at 192.168.51.3, and the
workstation I'm working with is at 192.168.50.120. Everything seems to be
routing across the networks just fine. I can FTP to the server and browse
web pages there on the machine.
I have 192.168.51.3 set as the primary Wins server on the 2000 box and I
checked again to verify that wins support = Yes was set. All of the 2000
boxes that are on the local network work just fine.
I also checked that the TCP/IP NetBIOS helper was running on the client,
and as is par with most of my problems, everything looks just fine.
