Samba and Workgroup Problem


Hello all
I have a configured samba server on a Suse 11 machine
the problem is that when the samba server is connected to the network
the workgroup gets blocked, when i click on view workgroup computers in my network places, of a windows machine, i get a message telling that my workgroup is not accessible
when the samsa server is not on there is no problem with the workgroup
Thanks for the replies

That is not an easy problem.

Are you running a firewall in a router? Have you *allowed* NETBIOS protocol in your firewall?

Is there no *IP address contention* between your machines?

Are you running Active Directory? Is there other server machine in the network?

Try to reevaluate.
