Hello folks!

I am currently trying to figure out quite the puzzle. Our office group has had a samba share working for the longest time on a Linux system and it seems to have gone down without any changes. I took a look and the samba shares seem to be still running, and I can access them using smbclient, but I am realizing that it is just through Windows that this share does not seem to be accessible. Windows machines also do not seem to see the Linux server at all despite being on the same network. I am not sure if a Windows update recently changed something or what, but I am looking for some tips on how to get this thing back online. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
