Hi everyone,

I have a Debian box with samba installed and a w2k client connected. The
operation is good except for one thing. If I create a file on a unix box
also connected it won't appear in a viewed folder on the w2k client unless
the window is manually refreshed. Am I missing something in the config
that will push the new listing to the client?

# Global parameters
        workgroup = FOO
        netbios name = BAR
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        password server = *
        syslog = 0
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 10000
        os level = 60
        wins server = FOO.BAR.FOO.BAR
        username = user
        invalid users = other_user
        write list = @group
        read only = No
        create mask = 0660
        directory mask = 0775
        sync always = Yes
        case sensitive = Yes
        oplocks = No
        level2 oplocks = No

        path = /path
        valid users = user
        guest ok = No

Any input very welcome.
