Same workgroup but net use (samba share) works from Win2K and not WinXP


I am running Samba on testzhost which is a Fedora Core 3 box.


When I use the following command from a Win2K PC, it works.
net use m: \\testZhost\testZpath\ /user:testZ\testZ testZ


When I use the same command from a WinXP PC, it says:
System error 53 has occurred.
The network path was not found.



In both cases the workgroup is BUDDY.


Why does it work in on Win2K and not WinXP?

First stop is to check the Windows Firewall that runs on XP. It may not be allowing SMB connections.

Yes, I did that - forgot to mention it.
I turned off the firewall on the XP and the sygate firewall on the W2K.
Still the same problem exists.

Try replacing "testZhost" with the IP address of the Fedora box. If this works, then the problem is with the NetBIOS name lookup.
