    Samba doesn't resolve hostname and workgroup not found

    I have two linux desktops on a home network connected via router.
    Desktop #1 is running Kubuntu 11.10 and it has the samba server.
    Desktop #2 is running OpenSUSE.
    Sometimes I connect a windows computer as well but I don't have any at the moment.

    I can access the samba server from the client via IP address, but not via the hostname. And I can access the samba server in dolphin if I type smb:\\192.168.02\ in the address bar, but otherwise dophin returns an error that there are no workgroups found in my local network when I look for samba shares. How can I fix this?

    Here is my smb.conf:

    HTML Code:
    adam@adam-Dell16:/home$ cat /etc/samba/smb.conf
    #
    # Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for Debian GNU/Linux.
    #
    #
    # 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 most of which 
    # are not shown in this example
    #
    # Some options that are often worth tuning have been included as
    # commented-out examples in this file.
    #  - When such options are commented with ";", the proposed setting
    #    differs from the default Samba behaviour
    #  - When commented with "#", the proposed setting is the default
    #    behaviour of Samba but the option is considered important
    #    enough to be mentioned here
    #
    # NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command
    # "testparm" to check that you have not made any basic syntactic 
    # errors. 
    # A well-established practice is to name the original file
    # "smb.conf.master" and create the "real" config file with
    # testparm -s smb.conf.master >smb.conf
    # This minimizes the size of the really used smb.conf file
    # which, according to the Samba Team, impacts performance
    # However, use this with caution if your smb.conf file contains nested
    # "include" statements. See Debian bug #483187 for a case
    # where using a master file is not a good idea.

    I'm really wondering about the output above after attempting to resolve the name via broadcast. tbd file not found and such.

    Thanks for looking through my post.

    Re: Samba doesn't resolve hostname and workgroup not found

    Actually, the problem appears to be with the client, which is running openSUSE 11.04. The server, running kubuntu 11.10, is probably working fine. Not sure however, since I don't have a working samba client to do a valid test.
