How do they lose the connection?
I am working in a (very small) LAN with a Samba 3.4.x server, a Windows-
2000 client and a Windows XP-Home client.
The Windows 2000 client always loses the working connection and shows
(in the Windows Explorer) a red colored symbol for the share and
"target" in the contents window. Clicking mostly doesn't reconnect.
"searching" the computer or "net view <IP address>" reconnects.
The XP home client doesn't show such nasty things.
In both cases: no domain connection.
