    I am posting this on the list after 2 weeks of frustrating efforts to get my XP home machine to talk to the Samba server on my SuSE 9.2 Linux box. Described below is the crux of the problem.

When I do an smbclient on the Linux box I can see the Windows machine listed. However, when I do a net view on the Windows XP Home machine I do not see the Samba box. Also, I get a System 1 error on the XP machine if the XP is not the Local Master Browser and if it is only the XP machine is visible in the output of the net view. I have removed all firewall services, enabled cleartext password in XP and enabled guest access in Samba. Also, I have disabled the firewall on the Linux box.

I don't know whether this will be of any use in debugging, When I do a net use on the XP box, and monitor the IP flow, I see traffic destined to port 80 on the Linux box from the XP box.
I got the setup to work, however, after a reboot of the XP box I am back to the square one.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
