i'm a newbie on this list, greetings to all here.

i have a Debian Woody, with Samba 2.2.3a. i had a problem with
that: when there comes a Windows XP, it can't browse the share's
of Samba server.
ok, i upgraded to 2.2.8a from source - the problem was resolved.

after this, customers says, windows's can't browse between
itself. forexample, there are three printers, printers are
shared, but if an another windows wants to install that printer, 
that windows says: permission denied. the permission of printers
is _full_controll_to_everybody_, local and domain users also.

it looks like windows clients (2000/XP) don't use the samba's
(if i look the 'set' command in windows, i see the value of
logonserver parameter is the name of windows machine.)

is it a know problem/bug, or is it my ignorance?
what may the problem?

and one thing: when i downgraded to samba-2.2.3a, this problem
with this config leave off....

here is a part of smb.conf:

  netbios name = SERVER
  workgroup = DOMAIN
  domain logons = yes
  server string = Samba %v
  log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
  lock directory = /var/lock/samba
  interfaces =
  bind interfaces only = yes
  local master = yes
  os level = 34
  domain master = yes
  preferred master = yes
  encrypt passwords = true
  log level = 7
  security = domain
  client code page = 852
  character set = ISO8859-2
  admin users = amitadm root
  domain admin group = root amitadm
  wins support = yes
  name resolve order = wins lmhosts
  unix password sync = yes
  passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
  passwd chat debug = yes
  passwd chat = *Enter\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n %*Retype\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %%n\n .
  directory mask = 0775
  logon path = C:\Documents and Settings\%U
  time server = yes

thank you:
