In the mean time please check with NET SHARE command if you can see the ADMIN$ and IPC$ shares?

Thank you so much! I can paste you smb.conf later on. No doubt that it could be, as you stated, a configuration problem.

Thank you so much! I can post you the smb.conf later on if you would like to see it. High probability that there is something wrong.

OK, back home.

Did you check that NET SHARE thing I asked earlier?

Also, could you please tell if this problem Windows machine can see other Windows machines? Is the Debian machine the only one it cannot see?

i can confirm positively that i can see with net share admin$ and ipc$. i can see other windows machines with my notebook. however i have another windows machine that can only see the debian server after the first connection to the share. beforehand that machine can not see the share under the network environment. i think i described the behaviour in my first post. it is quite weired. One windows 7 machine can see it and access it perfectly!

I have tried but I cannot reproduce your issue, but whatever I do my connection works.

You have confirmed that Debian is configured correctly, as it must be for your other Windows PCs can access it, Windows Network Discovery is turned on and you can ping Debian.

I'll ask if some of other geeks have an idea, I surely don't.

Ah now you gave me a hint!

Do you use wireless connection with that notebook and wired for those other computers? If so, could you try to shut down the notebook, connect it with Ethernet cable, boot it and try again?

BTW, I have asked some network gurus to have a look here.
