When I share a new folder on my XP box it isn't picked up by samba after a while.
If I immediately connect to the network and share a folder samba picks it up. After about 10 minutes if I share another folder samba won't pick it up.
I notice the same problem with smbtree- after a while it doesn't list user shares.
After looking at wireshark I could see that samba stopped sending a "Name Query" to my XP box. XP was still refreshing it's registration about once every 5 minutes though.
I'm using samba 3.0.28a and have no firewalls on the lan, any suggestions are welcome.
