Arch box isn't seen

OK Arch is up and running and really like what I'm seeing so far. Only snag is networking among other pc's, handled DHCP behind a router.

Arch box can access shares on other pc's


Other pc's *can't* access Arch.

[actinic@AN35N ~]$ smbclient -L
tree connect failed: Call returned zero bytes (EOF)
In Konqueror ... from any other linux box ... when the Arch box is clicked the
error message is:

'The file or folder smb://AN35N/ does not exist"

I get the same or similar message trying to connect from a Windows box.

Samba on Arch box is running.

actinic@AN35N ~]$ ps aux
root      3807  0.0  0.0   1480   484 ?        S<s  09:34   0:00 /usr/sbin/dhcpc

Firewall possibly? How can I tell? Other ideas? Thx

Hmmmm, I use Samba over a network and the Windows PC and talk to the Arch PC no worries. Are you sure the problemisn't in smb.conf? If they can see the computer but can't access the share on it that's what it sounds like to me.
