Hi to all, I have a samba server that was working with security share 
in one subnet and now is listening on another interface, configured as a
PDC logon server with wins support and w98 clients, I followed the

The clients added to the domain execute the logon scripts fine, but they
do not see the samba server in nethood, though they can access it in
nethood with \\ip_samba_server or \\netbios_name_samba_server, all the
clients w98  see each others.

I have this in log.nmbd

 [2004/05/13 11:52:29, 0]
 register_name_response: server at IP rejected our name
registration of ADMINISTRACION<1d> with error code 6.

I have to say that box in is not networking very well,
because it doesn't response to ping's though it can access internet, see
other boxes share's in nethood and ping other boxes.


and samba server ip is

Could anybody give me a tip on what is going bad, if log.nmbd doesn't
show who is local master browser, is something wrong?  what is the error
code 6?

thanks in advance
best regards
