Hi Neil, and thanks. I've done this adjustsment (and then some), and it has
finally started working. Phew.

So it seems the LMHOSTS file used by Samba is a kind of "backup" for the
actual hosts file? Why the need for two, almost identical files? (I am
trying to get to grips with the basics of Samba, but couldn't find any info
on this)
