I am using diagnosis.txt on a connection between Kubuntu Gutsy Gibbon
and a Windows XP machine with service pack 1 and 2 installed.
!== DIAGNOSIS.txt for Samba release 2.0.7 26 Apr 2000

diagnosis.txt fails on test #5.
run the command "nmblookup -B winpro '*'"
You should get the PCs IP address back. If you don't then the client
software on the PC isn't installed correctly, or isn't started, or you
got the name of the PC wrong.
If winpro doesn't resolve via DNS then use the IP address of the
client in the above test.
The result is:
added interface ip=10.22.44.4 bcast=10.22.44.255 nmask=255.255.255.0
added interface ip=127.0.0.1 bcast=127.255.255.255 nmask=255.0.0.0
querying * on 10.22.44.11
name_query failed to find name *
How can I test whether "the client software on the PC (Windows XP) isn't
installed correctly, or isn't started? I'm pretty sure the name of the
PC is correct. What client software should I be looking for?
