I am a Samba newbie who has just set up a Samba server running under
Fedora Core 3 and a client running under Win 98. Any attempt to see the
network from "Network Neighborhood" or from "Windows Explorer" fails
with the error box:
Unable to browse the network
The network is not accessible
For more information ...
I have run all the tests in the HOWTO section:
up to and including the last two:
C:\WINDOWS>net use x: \\claremont\TMP
on the client, which does, in fact make the device x: on my client
equivalent to /tmp on my server, and
$ nmblookup -M MYGROUP
querying MYGROUP on 192.168.255.255
on the server, which looks OK.
Nevertheless (to repeat) attempts to browse the network from "Network
Neighborhood" or from "Windows Explorer" all fail.
Is my installation of Win 98 broken? Should I reinstall? What's going
