Samba share list browsing

Hi, you all!
I have Samba installed at home. It is sharing some folders through the network..

The problem is that I can access and map those shares with Windows machines... But if I try clicking on the linux server name in the folder tree in order to expand it and show every share available I get an error message saying that the server is unavailable and gives me this: "The procedure number is out of range".

I know the server is available as I can ping it and open the shares (if I type the full address). Is there anything to do with IPC$ share?

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

Check the firewall settings. Remember the udp ports used for browsing.
You may have a samba-docs package available that supplies 3 samba 3 books. One has a troubleshooting section.

If your server is configured to run WINS add the IP address of your server in the client's network config or your router's DHCP config, and check the firewall settings. Make sure the winbind service is running.
