    ping NetBIOS name fails, nmblookup works

    Hi

    I have a server running Debian 5, but I shouldn't imagine things are too different from an Ubuntu Server. I also have three Windows 7 client PCs as well as an Ubuntu 10.10 client netbook.

    Hmm, well the thing is I didn't pay for it - it was supposed to be a favour for someone, as their computer doesn't have a CD drive. However it's looking like they made it pretty impossible to copy :(
