    Can't browse other samba hosts using nautilus (via <servername>) [SOLVED]

    I can't connect, or browse another samba server via it's netbios name nor hostname (which is the same on this particular server im trying to reach). Using the server *ip* works, but that kind of defeats the purpose of using a host/netbios name.

    As it turns out, I'm a retard. Apparently, since i set "interfaces" in smb.conf using (old syntax) "192.168.1." instead of using (new/correct syntax) "" the nmbd daemon on that machine didn't start, thus the name resolution failure.
    Run along, nothing to see here!
