I don't know what else I should be doing next. Thanks for your help.
Do you mean you can't see the "whole" server or just the share?
If the share isn't visible try to add the line under the share rule you have made in smb.conf: browsable = yes
Or if you can't see the server at all:
Make sure that the following options are properly configured in smb.conf:
1. The windows machine is in the same workgroup
2. wins support = yes
3. Configure remote browse list synchronisation here and request announcement to, or browse list sync from:
4. the master browser needs to be set.
These settings are important, I don't know for sure whether the wins server needs to be enabled yes or no ...just try it out....
Hope this helps,
