Re: [LUGALIST] smb.conf

Hi rob,

1)i have admin differend samba-server and my experience is: you don't need
a public share, but you have to use the "brwseable=yes/no" in your shares
or in the global section.

2)Don't care about the network environment ot NT. You are working with a
M... Product. There is no way to force NT to show the shares. If you have
two NT-server in the same net is it possible that one NT show the shares,
the other not.
