Hi all,

I've got this weird problem, and wonder if anyone else had it, and if so, how did you fix it?
The problem is as follows. I've got a win95osr2 machine with it's networking properly configured
(I know it is properly configured because I've got the same configuration on 2 other win98 machines that work fine).
The only protocal on this machine like on the 2 others is tcp/ip.
When I go into network neighborhood on this win95 machine, no computers appear (not even the  the machine itself).
If I try to look for my samba server machine with find computer, it isn't found.
If I then go and install netbui on the client, it shows up, but I still don't see my samba server (since it only uses tcp/ip).

Let me note that my network connection is fine. I can ping, telnet, access the net, ETC. 
Does anyone know why I can't browse the network on this win95 client using tcp/ip?
Thanks for any help in advance, and please ask if you need more details.

P.S. Before installling netbui, entire network is also not browseable. In addition, if I go to run, and type \\servername\share
where servername is my samba server's name, and share is an accessiable share on that server, I get a diaoluge from windows explorrer saying that folder \\servername\share doesn't exist.
