Description Matthias Dieter Wallnöfer 2007-07-27 12:23:26 UTC
It seems that SAMBA isn't able to show itself as an icon in NN. I encountered a similar problem when trying to do some tests with NT's Server Manager. There I also didn't see an icon. The UNC access works without problems. What kind of problem could it be?
I tried to set in SAMBA and the client a SAMBA 3 WINS server, but this didn't help.

Currently Samba4 does not support NetBIOS browsing.  Also see bug #4545 for another browsing technology we should also support.  

We do need to bring in the code to implement this.

I've corrected the bug name.
Comment 3 Matthias Dieter Wallnöfer 2007-08-23 01:04:54 UTC
Since it's not really a bug, I'll mark it as a feature request.
