Hi all,

I use suse linux 9 with samba.3.0.2

In the smb.conf among others there are:

;basic server settings
workgroup = NIK
server string = SZERVER
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_SNDBUF=8192 SO_RCVBUF=8192
wins support = yes
name resolve order = wins lmhosts hosts bcast

It is okay, testparm do not mark errors.

But when I try to join to my samba from XP in expolrer \\SZERVER, it do not
work. WINS is setuped in XP.

In yast2, my linux's netbios name: linux9, and I try to connect \\linux9, it
works! WHY?

What is wrong?



In lmhosts there is:
----------------------------------------------------------	SZERVER
