In my local LAN, trying to share folders from my Linux Server to a Windows PC.
Samba daemon is listening:
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:445 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 2707/smbd tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:139 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 2707/smbd
Samba looks well configured:
[root@localhost samba]# testparm Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf rlimit_max: increasing rlimit_max (1024) to minimum Windows limit (16384) Processing section "[Downloads]" Processing section "[homes]" Processing section "[printers]" Loaded services file OK. Server role: ROLE_STANDALONE Press enter to see a dump of your service definitions [global] server string = My Lil Linux Box smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192 idmap config * : backend = tdb hosts allow = 192.168., 127.

Firewall has added exception for Samba and Samba client. Also disabled SELinux momentarily.
Nevertheless Windows PC can't discover this server, but server actually responds pings.
Any idea why I can't reach the Linux Server?
