I had Samba seeing all my windows shares in Dolphin but now they have all disappeared. I had my Windows machines disconnected from the router but all settings are still the same. My Windows partition which i don’t use shows the shares under network right away so i know the setup there is fine.
Thank you for your reply.
My Windows machine (server) has the name workgroup setup and as far as i can see so does my Linux machine (client).
Both machines done have the same name.
I never needed a password before, sharing is setup as password free on my Windows server.
I have disabled my firewall on my client (linux) and my server (Windows) does not have one.
As i said this worked seamlessly when i installed suse but seems to have stopped.

The parameter “security = domain” should only be used for a member server of a Samba3 or NT style domain. Let Samba
just use the default value of “security = user”. See: man smb.conf.
I would suggest you follow the guide given here: http://swerdna.dyndns.org/suselanprimer.html. It is long in the tooth
and there are a few minor differences in YaST but the smb.conf should work well for a simple workgroup.
