This works, as well as
smbclient -L //  -I
That way I need the ip address.

So you can connect that way?


By the way, something seems wrong with my linux machine.
If I do ping homere (or homere.  and the name of the network) it does
not work from the Linux, but works very well from a XP machine !!!
homere is a XP machine.

Have you looked up Samba using google?Have you read any of the information?
try pinging the machine by  IP  not name. Does this work?

Open the NFS4 port on the firewall. You may need to restart the firewall service if you do this. Always when playing with the firewall, if opening a port does not work, then first restart the service, if that does not do it then go back and close the open port. Do not leave unnecessary ports open at any time. Google is your friend!!
