no change. I have the suse machine in the firewall trusted local area.

ps. I deleted all of the samba conf files and restarted samba,
configured with swat and after changing names/passwords several times
finally have it working, but flakey. It *sometimes* accepts a name and
then not and then another and the same with passwords. Sometimes
allows access w/o a password. ??? Access w/o a password does not pose
a problem locally, if fact is preferred, but *not* consistent.
