i have 3 computers in the LAN, 1 server (ubuntu 11.10 server), 2 desktop-pcs (1 windows 7, 1 ubuntu 11.10 desktop)... i shared some folders from the server, the windows and the ubuntu pc, but i can't see them. neither on windows, nor on the ubuntu desktop, however, i can access them if i enter the computername (or ip, both works).
when a friend comes with his windows-laptop and connects to the lan, he can see the shared folders of the windows machine and i can see his shared folders, but we both can't see one of the ubuntu-computers and the ubuntu desktop can't see any share at all...
is there a way to tell ubuntu, respectively nautilus that it bcasts the network and finds the shares?
i have alrdy installed winbind, wins, samba and configured samba to use wins and added wins to /etc/nsswitch.conf.
