10.3: Potential Windows server browsing fix
Authored by: jammjamm on Nov 20, '03 01:14:24PM

I can connect to my Windows XP shares when I go to Go -> Connect to Server

My "network" alias has a Date Modified of 12/31/1903. Inside it, there's "servers". Inside that is My-Computer.local only (no workgroup or windows shares). My workgroup is WORKGROUP on Windows and Mac.

$ nmblookup -M WORKGROUP
querying WORKGROUP on
name_query failed to find name WORKGROUP#1d

$ smbcontrol nmbd force-election
Can't find pid for destination 'nmbd'

These results are before and after editing the smb files per instructions.

In sum: Windows network browsing doesn't work for me.
