Samba share not working

I have CentOS 5.4 system on which I have configured Samba Server.
But I am not able to browse it through remote Windows Machine.

my testparm says:
[root@myfileserver samba]# testparm
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
Processing section "[homes]"
Processing section "[printers]"
Processing section "[testing]"
Processing section "[export]"
Processing section "[sysadm]"
