You should see some output that shows the browseable shares. If that works then you should be able to see it on your windows PCs network places. BTW what did you put in the hosts file and did you add any samba users? Also, if you are running a firewall make sure the SMB ports are open.
Here is the response:
ahwebs:~# smbclient -L Samba24
Enter root's password:
Receiving SMB: Server stopped responding
tree connect failed: Call returned zero bytes (EOF)
I am a little confused on the Status of nmbd. If this:
3532 ? Ss 0:00 /usr/sbin/nmbd -D
indicates that nmbd is running, why would Samba SWAT indicate nmbd is stopped?
I can see the Samba24 netbios name on my Windows Systems but receive the following errors:
\\Samba24 is not accessible.
The network path was not found.
from my 2000 Pro System and my XP Pro tells me I do not have permission to access Samba24.
I have no firewalls set-up, because of the problems I experience with Vista.
Here is my hosts file. The IPs in italics are the ones I added.
127.0.1.1 ahwebs.hsd1.pa.comcast.net. ahwebs
# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1 localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
