Shares are no longer displayed

Asked by Dave on 2012-03-09

For some reason shares have stopped showing in the browser.

I recently changed my Netgear router for a Linksys WRT54GS but I don't know if this is the problem.

Nmlookup shows shares:

nmblookup -A blacksun

I have tried turning off firewalls on server and client but no change.

Any ideas how I can diagnose the problem?

By the way it's spelt 'Available'

Fixed it:

I found that my local smb.conf was out-of-date and bound to a different interface. Changed it and it's fine again.
