I forgot to mention that from WinXP the LTSPserver is the only machine
listed by findsmb

Where as from the LTSPServer both computers are listed.

Subject: Samba problem


On K12LTSP 4.1.0 (the WINS Server) the workgroup name (hkschool) is listed
twice  in the network/Windows Network window.

One of them shows the shares on the K12LTSP server only

The other one says >Folder contents cannot be displayed. Sorry couldn't
display all the contents of "Windows Network: hkschool%20%20%20%20%20%20%20"

Any ideas what is going on? This has happened even when I have reinstalled
the K12LTSP server and the laptop works fine on another network/server
elsewhere (K12LTSP4.0.1)


Details follow.
