For the last couple of weeks I have had this problem with a single XP 
workstion.  It would only connect to our Samba server by IP address never by 
netbios name.  Other workstions had no problem.

Today, I found the solution.  On the affected workstion, I manually changed 
to clock to match the Domain servers.  Suddenly the problem went away????? 
XP Professional is supposed to synchronize the workstations clock to the AD 
Domain controller, however, this one wasn't.

Using Ubuntu 6.06.1, Samba 3.0.22, VMWare on Win2003 server.

I can connect using with admin user and ip address, but using admin and 
netbios name prompts for password and results in access denied.  WINS is 
enabled in Samba config.

Does Vmware or Ubuntu introduce weird problems or is something else going 
on?  Running the net stat command results in error 5 trying to resolve 
netbios name.
