Samba works with one windows computer, but not the other?

This is one weird problem. I don't know much about samba. I use Ubuntu and connected to one windows computer just fine using (in Gnome): Places -> Connect to Server...
Windows Share,, SharedDocs, (rest empty).
Worked fine!
But when I try the same thing with, it says "SharedDocs couldn't be found. Perhaps it has been recently deleted.

If I go to smb://, it will list the folder 'SharedDocs.' If I go to smb://, I don't get any errors, but it doesn't list anything.

Network is FSNETWORK rather than MSHOME. I can ping back and forth fine. 103 works fine on other computers.

Any help appreciated.

Well, changed the ip of 103 to 101 and disabled authentication. Dunno which one it was (probably the latter...), but it worked.
