Problem Resolution

If something does not work, the log.nmbd file will help to track down the problem. Try a log level of 2 or 3 for finding problems. Also note that the current browse list usually gets stored in text form in a file called browse.dat.

If it does not work, you should still be able to type the server name as \\SERVER in filemanager , then press enter, and filemanager should display the list of available shares.

Some people find browsing fails because they do not have the global guest account set to a valid account. Remember that the IPC$ connection that lists the shares is done as guest and so you must have a valid guest account.
