Dear samba orgnisation,
i have installed my samba in my linux server, in my
network there are 5 machines, 1 is linux and other are
win2k, i have configured the file /etc/samba/smb.conf,
i change workgroup and etc...
and i make a "testparm", it's all right, and i restart
my samba, it's right.
i can see my linux name from windows network but when
i click it the message "The network path was not
found", when i try to ping from win2k to linux, it
works, when i try "nmblookup WORKGROUP" from linux,
it's ok, i can ping from linux to windows and windows
to linux, but i can not ping buy name from windows to
here is my smb.conf:

# This is the main Samba configuration file. You
should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the
options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable
options (perhaps too
# many!) most of which are not shown in this example
# Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a #
# is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will
use a #
# for commentry and a ; for parts of the config file
that you
# may wish to enable

the command "testparm"
