    Default Network Browsing fixed

    Well, for me anyways (Leopard 10.5.7). It was driving me nuts as to why when I browsed the network my windows machines were not showing up. I then fired up my Server 2003 test machine in vmware and osx found it right away. This got me thinking... (dangerous!)

    I jumped into the terminal and did the following:

    sudo -s
    <your password>

    cd /var/db
    nano smb.conf

    find the line that says:

    wins support = no

    change it to yes

    Control X, and press enter

    then enter the following commands

    service smbd stop
    service nmbd stop
    service smbd start
    service nmbd start

    exit and exit again

    Now go to your Finder-Go-Network

    And you PC machines should be there.
