10.3: Potential Windows server browsing fix
Authored by: downinit on Feb 09, '04 07:16:36PM

I had a similar situation. I could see all of the windows servers on our network, but they all showed up directly under network. I didn't even realized their was supposed to be a folder for "local" and "workgroup". On one machine all I did was turn off smb browsing and change the name of our workgroup on the other machines to something other than "workgroup". Suddenly both folders showed up under network. Funny thing is when I tried to set the workgroup name back to workgroup both folders dissapeared.

On my other machine I found another samba config file located at /library/application support/Samba Sharing/ I simply added the line workgroup = "name of workgroup" to this file and now this machine works as well.

The names of the files are backup.sscf default.sscf and test.sscf does any one else have these files?
