    I was able to view all the Windows servers and computers through finder when Tiger was on my Mac but since upgrading to Leopard, I have to use the "connect to server" method to gain any access. When I click on the "network" button in finder, I can see the other Macs on the domain but none of the Windows machines. I thought maybe it was my smb.conf file that maybe needed something changed but I am not sure what to add or change.

    I was hoping someone here would be pretty good with these conf files and maybe be able to help me out. I have tried so many things and so many websites and still have yet to find a solution. Here is my smb.conf file:

    ; ============================================================================
    ; For the format of this file and comprehensive descriptions of all the
    ; configuration option, please refer to the man page for smb.conf(5).
    ; The following configuration should suit most systems for basic usage and
    ; initial testing. It gives all clients access to their home directories and
    ; allows access to all printers specified in /etc/printcap.

    ; BEGIN required configuration

    ; Parameters inside the required configuration block should not be altered.
    ; They may be changed at any time by upgrades or other automated processes.
    ; Site-specific customizations will only be preserved if they are done
    ; outside this block. If you choose to make customizations, it is your
    ; own responsibility to verify that they work correctly with the supported
    ; configuration tools.

    debug pid = yes
    log level = 1
    server string = Mac OS X

    printcap name = cups

    map to guest = Bad User
    guest account = nobody

    unix charset = UTF-8-MAC
    display charset = UTF-8-MAC
    dos charset = 437

    vfs objects = darwinacl,darwin_streams

    ; Don't become a master browser unless absolutely necessary.
    os level = 2
    domain master = no

    ; For performance reasons, set the transmit buffer size
    ; to the maximum and enable sendfile support.
    max xmit = 131072
    use sendfile = yes

    ; The darwin_streams module gives us named streams support.
    stream support = yes
    ea support = yes

    ; Enable locking coherency with AFP.
    darwin_streams:brlm = yes

    ; Core files are invariably disabled system-wide, but attempting to
    ; dump core will trigger a crash report, so we still want to try.
    enable core files = yes

    ; Configure usershares for use by the synchronize-shares tool.
    usershare max shares = 1000
    usershare path = /var/samba/shares
    usershare owner only = no
    usershare allow guests = yes
    usershare allow full config = yes

    ; Filter inaccessible shares from the browse list. shares by access = yes

    ; Check in with PAM to enforce SACL access policy.
    obey pam restrictions = yes

    ; Make sure that we resolve unqualified names as NetBIOS before DNS.
    name resolve order = lmhosts wins bcast host

    ; Pull in system-wide preference settings. These are managed by
    ; synchronize-preferences tool.
    include = /var/db/smb.conf

    comment = All Printers
    path = /tmp
    printable = yes
    guest ok = no
    create mode = 0700
    writeable = no
    browseable = no

    ; Site-specific parameters can be added below this comment.
    ; END required configuration.

    Any help is GREATLY appreciated!
