In order to close my post :

The wins service is only necessary when there is some subnets, if there is only one it's not necessary. It do not resolve the prob of master browser election.

In order that samba server becomes master browser :

master browser = yes
preferred master = yes
os level = 34

IN the machine that causes trouble I disabled master browser.

And now you can see the samba server in nethood in all pc's but the f**k machine, and samba server can't access it (connection timeout when accessing and neither one xp home edition can access it.

This machine do not responses to ping's but what puzzles me it's that OTHER W98 can access share's.

I think this is a prob in and not a samba prob so I think we can close this post.

Sorry I think I do not mention that I have samba 2.2.8a

All 3.x.x users must upgrade to current version 3.0.4

In order to sucessive upgrade (message from angel galindo: <>):

- Compile and install samba with a prefix like "/opt/samba-x.y.z"
- ln -s /opt/samba-x.y.z /opt/samba
- Set your new initscript like "/etc/init.d/samba" , which uses your
new path (/opt/samba) and use it to define the passes through every run
- Set the appropiate environment variables to your scripts to avoid
using the ones are already working (/usr/bin or whatever)
(PATH=/opt/samba/bin:$PATH , for example)
- /etc/init.d/smb stop
- /etc/init.d/samba start
- rpm -e samba* (do it after, once the new version works fine, if you

You can test it before in your development servers, something like this should do the work for you. Once you've done it this way you will be
able to compile newer versions with previx = /opt/samba-x'.y'.z' and the
restart will be just:

/etc/init.d/samba stop
rm /opt/samba
ln -s /opt/samba-x'.y'.z' /opt
/etc/init.d/samba stop

Theese both procedures are totally scriptable and has so few impact in
you HA environment like using RPMs, with the goody of being using
anytime the version that you prefer, independently of which one is RPM
packed by your distro.

change the line from last script:

ln -s /opt/samba-x'.y'.z' /opt/samba

You could use /opt or whatever u like.

Have fun all of you samba users.
