Since upgrading to Ubuuntu 16.04 LTS from 14.04 LTS, I cannot see
either my Windows PC or any of three Linux-based NAS in either
"Network" or "Windows Network". Both windows have no icons.
After the upgrade, I did apt-get update and apt-get install samba and
apt-get install winbind
My Windows 7 Ultimate PC can see the Linux PC and the three NAS
without problem. It can even read and write to the shared directory on
the Ubuntu 16.04 PC.
Ping to all four devices works. Everything has a static IP address
192.168.1.xxx. All the connections are wired.
All have the same workgroup name.
I even added all the IP addresses to /etc/hosts and /etc/lmhosts
Thanks in advance for any pointers as to where to look next
