Samba mapping problem

Hi all,

I have a machine called tux, it's slackware 9 and configured to be part of a domain.

I've edited my hosts file and resolv.conf. And all seems ok. I can ping the ip from another machine, and it works. I can ping the machine name and it works. All fine.


I've edited smb.conf and added another share. I can map the share if i map \\ipnumber\sharename

but not if i map \\machinename\sharename it just refuses to see the share.. WHY?????

If i can ping it surely its there????

What's your servername set to in smb.conf? Do you have both smbd and nmbd running? Are there any hints in either log.smbd or log.nmbd? What does nmblookup report for you hosts?
