Hi David!

Thanks for your answer. I can't find the problem. My local firewall is
disabled and enable client to access my computer doesn't help either, it
actually seems quite backwards to have to share my computer to be able to
connect to other samba-installations.

Any other ideas?

Thanks in advance
