Hey,

Ive been running 2x Samba servers for a while now, but one of them doesn't appear in 'My Network Places' on Windows XP.

Server 1:
(Appears in My Network Places)
Ubuntu 9.10, Samba 3.4.0

Server 2:
(Doesn't appear in My Network Places, but can be accessed by typing \\server02\share )
Ubuntu 10.04, Samba 3.4.7

Ive tried various settings to no avail. Any help would much appreciated.

Cheers,
Dave

check your DNS. do you have the proper lookup zones set? are you operating DNS?

I think installing winbind fixes that.
