k, cool, now add this to your smb.conf

lm announce = yes
lm interval = 120

and then to the whole restart nmbd and smbd and lets see if that solves the automatic issue. are you having any problems seeing the shares when you connect to the samba server?

you know what. I have just found out that the current version of Samba doesnt support XPs net neighborhood. Samba 3 will though.

yeah, that way does work. If stupid gates could hop on the linx band wagon.. there wouldnt be any compatibility issues. For now it works but I need something that will allow me to have security. I guess Ill just have to use this unitl good ole version 3 comes out. Thanks man. You have been extremely helpful.


Now if only I can remember to not delete the file I wrote all your feedback too... I should be fine

take care man, there are ways to maintain security with it, but it's not with xp home, otherwise this whole headache would go away.

i was having a similar problem. M$ was not detecting the samba server beacause: the logon.bat (dos formatted) file was misssing from /usr/bin/?/? ... or the path to the logn.bat deliniated in smb.conf was erroneous. this was my deal.
