Several months ago, I set up samba so that my Win2K box could access files
on my Linux (RH 7.1) box. Worked like a dream, no issues at all. A few
months later, the Win2K box suddenly stopped seeing the Linux box in its
workgroup. I restarted smb, all that jazz - no luck. After a few weeks
of Win2K blindness, I apparently fixed -something- because it started
seeing the Linux box again (I have no idea what I did... I think I futzed
with workgroups and rebooted a bunch of times on both boxes... maybe).
Unfortunately, it's started doing it again, completely randomly. I have
little hope that it's actually a Linux problem (I haven't upgraded, and
haven't changed the samba configuration), but I was wondering if anyone
had any idea what's going on and how to fix it? It makes me very sad.
I can supply more information upon request.
