Hello all,

i am using Samba samba-3.0.23c_2,1 under FreeBSD 6.1 Release. The  
Problem is when i connect from a Windows XP Box to a share i have  
setup on the server and create a new File or Directory, i have to  
manually click Refresh or F5 to have the newly created File or Folder  
appear in the List. Does anyone experience the same thing, and how  
can i fix this?

Thanks a lot,

Below my smb.conf File

         workgroup = WORKGROUP
