No, I was getting your thread mixed up with another one, that will
teach me to try and do several things at once.

Samba (like a Windows computer) functions as a client and a server. A
client when it connects to another computer and a server when another
computer connects to it.
Network browsing depends on SMBv1 being available at both ends, so for
your Samba computer to show up in Network Neighborhood, you need SMBv1
enabled on the Windows computer and 'server min protocol = NT1' set in
For the Samba computer to connect to a share on a Windows computer, you
need SMBv1 enabled on the Windows computer and 'client min protocol =
NT1' set in smb.conf
You also need nmbd running on your Samba computer
