so here is the thing.
i have installed samba3 on my macbook pro (osx lion) if i go to my windows pc and i put
\\<ip of mac> into explorer bar this works i get the list of shared files.
But now i need my mac to show up into the list that windows makes of all the systems connected to network.
now you will ask why do you want this? I want this because ultimatily i want to browse my macbook through my Eminent hdMedia RT2 and i noticed this device only shows the devices which show up in the windows network list. in windows explorer.
So my question is: how can i let windows know to see my mac, i am guessing through the smb.conf?????
or even better: if you know it? how to add a device manually to Eminent hdMedia RT2???
any help is much appreciated.
PS. I also have a ubuntu 11.10 machine with smb but this one does get shown in the network list. i used Webmin to configure smb for my ubuntu system.
