I am running Ubuntu 12.04. I am connected to my network by a netgear router with an ethernet cable. There is one other Ubuntu 12.04 computer connected to the router with ethernet, and up to four laptops using wireless connections. The Internet is connected to the router by an ethernet cable from an ADSL modem. All the machines can see each other, but the Ubuntu ones cannot connect to each other's shares. The Ubuntu machines can access the mac laptop's shared folders. The windows7 laptop can see the Ubuntu machine's shared folders and access the files. I also have a wireless HP printer that works without problems.
Ateempts to connect to the other Ubuntu machine gives me the error "Failed to retrieve share list from server".
smbtree gives me:
WORKGROUP The first computer is a laptop. The next is the other Ubuntu computer and Buzzy2 is my machine. The 5 folders that are shared were shared using the GUI.

What are the first steps in diagnosing my problem?
