I am running samba 2.2.12 on Freebsd 4.3, on an
internal network, with no firewall.  I have a very
simple smb.conf.  Here are the relevant entries:

   workgroup = Workgroup
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY
   printing = bsd
   guest account = nobody
   hosts allow =

   comment = Temporary file space
   browseable = yes
   writeable = yes
   path = /temp
   read only = no
   public = yes
   create mode = 0777

/temp is owned by nobody, and has read / write
privileges for everyone.

My windows machines can see the samba server, but they
cannot browse to it.

When I run 

root at machinename# smbclient //machinename/

I get the following output:

added interface ip= bcast=
Anonymous login successful
Domain=[WORKGROUP] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 2.2.12]
tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME

Help appreciated.
