The Windows Shares SMB Browsing problem in Hardy


As a Ubuntu newbie I have been struggling with this well known issue and discovered some pointers that I have not seen mentioned in countless forums.

I firmly believe that if there is a single Windows machine on the network without a fixed IP address browsing is not possible.

On top of this there are firewall issues. I have not decided on a sure fire solution with AVG, but I'm working on it! Connecting by the IP address is not subject to picky firewall settings, just enable a single IP address, or valid range.

If you are expert please let me know if I'm off target, or pass it on if I'm right.

Thanks for giving me a voice.

John
