Re: Problems with SAMBA after upgrade 6.0->6.1



Just a real quickie that is probably totally to your problem, but I'll
mention it anyway :)  Make sure that your netmasks are the same on ALL boxes
that use the same subnet. I had them different and some things worked and
others didn't. Basically it killed the broadcasting.

Cheers
