I have a Samba PDC setup on FreeBSD with a WinXP, Win7, 2003 server and
Ubuntu Linux all joined. All works from each workstation except for my
Windows XP unable to access the Linux member. It can access all other
computers except that one while Win7 and 2003 server have no problems
accessing this Samba Linux member. The Linux member is running Samba

This WinXP client has SP3 and joined the same Samba PDC domain FITZ as
all other workstations without a problem. It can access all other
computers and shares, but this Linux member and the error is 'The
network path was not found'. I have tried shutting down firewall and
virus protections.

Anyone know what can cause this type of problem between WinXP SP3 and a
Samba member?
