As I said, it also appears that the SMB server is unaware of the machine
named Starbase. Remember nmblookup is unable to locate the machine named

Yes. Only one username is in play here, albeit mapped on the Linux
machine, and that's "Andrew DeFaria". It's the same username on Voyager
and the same username on Starbase. Remember Starbase used to occupy
Voyager's place. And smbusers maps "Andrew DeFaria" -> andrew, which is
my username on the Linux box Earth.
And remember, this mapping is currently working from Voyager\Andrew
DeFaria -> andrew at earth. Also, Starbase\Andrew DeFaria can map shares
from Voyager and Voyager\Andrew DeFaria can map shares from Starbase.
Voyager\Andrew DeFaria can map shares from Earth. It's only
Starbase\Andrew DeFaria that cannot map shares nor browse shares on
Earth. Note that Starbase can browse into the workgroup Universe and it
sees some share names there (It sees Web for example, and a couple
others, but not all of the ones that Voyager sees). If, however, I
attempt to browse into Web, for instance, the username/password dialog
box pops up and as I said, no username password combination works! :-( .

Yes I do this all the time, usually as the test case. Yes it does prompt
for a username/password. I have tried all of
[Earth|Voyager|Starbase]\Andrew DeFaria. I've also tried
[Earth|Voyager|Starbase]\andrew. Nothing works, with the one and only
password for "Starbase\Andrew DeFaria" and andrew at earth. The password is
the same for all user IDs being used here.
If I browse from Voyager to \\earth\web I get in no dialogs or prompts

Interesting and I will try that. However how exactly do I state that new
user? Do you mean in the username/password dialog box presented on
Starbase when I browse to \\earth\web I specify a username of say
earth\root and then root's password. I believe I tried that. Didn't
work, but I could try it again (actually I see that smbusers has a
mapping for root -> "administrator" and "admin". Perhaps I should try
I have six locks on my door all in a row. When I go out, I lock every
other one. I figure no matter how long somebody stands there picking the
locks, they are always locking three.
