I have just installed openSUSE 11.1 and got SAMBA up and running. However, I have not been able to have my windowz machines see the netBIOS name of my server. I can get to the shares if I use the IP address just fine.

The windowz machines are on a separate network (the server is on 192.168.1.1 and the PCs are on 192.168.0.1).

I can ping the server from the PCs, but I cannot ping the PCs from the server. I have made sure that the Firewall is setup to allow Netbios server and Samba server on the external zones. In addition, I allowed broadcasts for samba browsing to my external interfaces.

I am not sure what else to do. I came from an UBUNTU environment and never had these issues.

As a note of interest: When I turn-off the firewall, I experience the same issues.
