Linux and windows connectivity issue

Linux and windows connectivity issue

Error: Dprintarunthaya is not accessible. You might not have permission to use the network resources. Contact the administrator of this service to find out if you have access permissions.

The network path was not found.

The error message appears when ever I try to access any of the directories from the network places from Windows XP SP2 Client.

An ADSL router is connected to a EDI max Switch and Linksys wireless router.

All the computers connect directly to the Switch, so internet is working fine.

I logged in the server as root. Everything is under workgroup: DPRINT

I have done all the basic troubleshooting (hope so)

Samba service………running

Restart samba service

Ping client from server……working

Ping server from client…….working

ifconfig: gives me IP address of [url removed, login to view]

dig: [url removed, login to view] (able to ping from the client)

[url removed, login to view] file:

I am not very sure what needs to be done here the connection was working fine. Suddenly it just stopped working. I have to fix it AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

If you need more info just reply back and will try to provide as much details as i can.

I need a detailed step by step solution as I am not very familiar with the commands in linux. I hae to resolve this issue asap.
