I've got a strange problem that I really could do with some help fixing, if you'd be so kind? This is my first post so please be gentle?!
I'm running Samba on Ubuntu Server 11.10. I've set up a share which I can see fine on a Mac, on an XP machine, and on a Win 7 professional virtual machine. I have a Win 7 pro laptop, but I can't see the share on it at all. To date I've:
Pinged the server, and get a reply.
Disabled firewalls, pinged the server and got a reply.
Control Panel > Administrative Tools, Local Security Policy > Local Policies > Security Options
Network security: LAN Manager authentication level Send LM & NTLM responses
Minimum session security for NTLM SSP Disable Require 128-bit encryption
Then pinged the server and got a reply.
Despite all these the server doesn't appear in the "Network" section of Computer. And yet it's clearly there, pingable, and accessible from other machines.
Any ideas? Cheers.
