Hi All,

I configured a Samba server ( on my Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 4 at home, my Windows XP ( can see the Samba server
under "My Network Places" but I cannot access the share path, when I
click on the Samba server icon in "My Network Places", it returned
error message:

"\\SambaServerHostName is not accessible. You might not have permission
to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server
to find out if you have access permission.

The network path was not found"

I use workgroup configuration, when I run nmblookup command on the
Samba server, it returned:

[root@gatewaypiii ~]# nmblookup -d 2 '*'
added interface ip= bcast=
querying * on
name_query failed to find name *

Here are the parameters:

[root@gatewaypiii ~]# testparm
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
Processing section "[homes]"
Processing section "[printers]"

Loaded services file OK.
