LAN Problem

Another strange problem that has occurred after upgrading my system from v9.0 to v9.3.

In 9.1 I could access Igor, a MS XP box on my LAN via either Krusader or Konqueror via Samba and/or LinNeighborhood.

Up until today, the linux browser could only see some of the MS directories that were accessable in 9.0 - strange point number one. For some reason, starting with a fresh boot this morning the browsers now see none of the MS directories.

LinNeighborhood used to work, in 9.0, with out complaint. No more! It can see all of the direcories on the XP machine, but when I attempt to mount one I get:

smbmount //IGOR/P /root/mnt/IGOR/P/ -o username=Administrator%*****,fmask=644,dmask=755,uid=0,gid=0,ip=,debug=0,workgroup=ffc,port=139
Can't resolve address

I have acccepted all of the defaults for LinNeighborhood. Neither of the machines is behind a dedicated firewall as I depend on the routher firewall.

This situation puts a serious crimp in my research as I routinely move files between the machines.

I don't have the faintest idea as to what is going on and will appreciate any and all assistance.

Thanks in advance
