Can connect to smb://192.168.0.112/share but not smb://NYS/share

In Konqueror I get an error if I try to browse the windows network.
The error is that the network is unreachable.

However while at the smb:// prompt I can type
smb://192.168.0.112/ShareName and pull up a windows share on this
machine fine. However if I try and enter smb://NYW/Sharename to
connect to the same share it just hangs (NYW is the computer at
192.168.0.112)

I am not sure if this is an issue with my samba config file(the server
side of samba works fine, I can access the linux shares from windows
fine) or if this is an error with my network configuration.

I think this might be a netbios issue. If I ping "NYW" I get "unknown
host NYW." However if I ping "NYW.JJ.COM" I get a response. I am
thinking that I need to resolve that first. Is that correct? If so
how do I fix this so that it either appends my domain name to all DNS
lookups or uses netbios to find the machine.

I included a copy of the top of my smb.conf just in case the problem
lies there.

Hi,

are you using SuSE9.1? If so, there is a bug in the Yast module which
configures the smbclient. In this case, open yast>network>sambaclient and
enter a WRONG workgroup name. This will make you able to browse the Windows
shares in konqueror.
Else:
try smbclient -L 192.168.0.112
and see what your box thinks, the Netbios name of NYS is.

Regards, Alex

The netbios names mapped to ip, can be set in the file /etc/lmhosts
otherwise NYW needs to be resolved by a broadcast over the network, and
this is a bit tricky and depends on you other systems too.
setting the domain to jj.com should help to ping NYW
oww and Alex's "smbclient -L localhost" should show you the workgroup
and who is the master on your network.

goodluck jan
