This post is related to this one I opened yesterday but in the meantime I found what is going wrong (that is not samba) :
In the configuration panel > servers :
Then Test ==> invalid server address
- Code: Select all
$ ping news.free.fr

If I set the host to the IP, it's working fine...
OS: Ubuntu 10.04 server
Firewall Software: no
Are you using IPV6? no
Is the issue reproducible? yes (i think)
