Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 113091
Can't access network computer from windows client

Description of problem:
Network computers disapper from my network windows.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I'm assuming this is the same issue I saw.
For some reason, Windows 98 and Windows XP computers (the only two
tested) could no longer access the Fedora Core 1 SMB server a few
days after the update from Red Hat 9. I upgraded to samba-3.0.2-
7.FC1 immediately following the install, so I did not test with the
orignial FC1 version. The FC1 linux SMB server is set to be the WINS
server for the network. Changing dns proxy = yes from no "fixed" it.
Every computer on this small network is in the /etc/hosts file.
Upgrading to samba-3.0.3-1.i386.rpm from Samba.org didn't make any
difference (dns proxy = no means no access to the SMB server).
Is this still an issue with recent samba version / FC4?
FC1 is now the responsibility of Fedora Legacy. Since this is not
a security bug, and the reporter has not responded by a long time to
a request for updated info, closing. If the problem occurs in
FC5, please feel free to reopen.
