I've had a samba share running for the last couple years. It was working fine until yesterday. The samba system gets daily updates
Code:
eix-sync
emerge -uDvN world
env-update && source /etc/profile
dispatch-conf
emerge --depclean
revdep-rebuild
the same as the other two gentoo boxes (all x86_64). I've always been able to access the drive via Nautilus / Dolphin / Nemo.

Both of the Kde systems are based off of stable profiles(One is a dual boot laptop
Code:
cat /etc/portage/package.keywords
app-crypt/truecrypt
app-text/calibre
dev-python/PyQT4
dev-python/sip
www-client/firefox
app-admin/eselect-opengl
media-libs/mesa
app-text/calibre
virtual/glu
media-libs/glu
net-wireless/wpa_supplicant
net-misc/wicd
, the other is the samba server
Code:
cat /etc/portage/package.keywords
dev-java/icedtea
dev-java/icedtea-web
app-crypt/truecrypt
sys-fs/zfs
sys-fs/zfs-kmod
sys-kernel/spl
). The Gnome system is mostly stable with some unstable packages.

The System with Nemo is running Mint 14. On the samba server, I can access the samba share via Dolphin either directly or by going through network. On the Gnome system I can access the shares via places//Connect to Server//Windows Share but using Dolphin is times out. On the second Kde system (a laptop running Gentoo and Win 7) I cannot access the samba share at all under Gentoo (Tried using Dolphin and the Network Folder Wizard), but Win 7 has no problems. The same applies to a Mac Mini, a Windows XP machine and a pure Windows 7 laptop. I can ping the samba server from all the machines with no issues. I can also manually connect to the samba server by using the mount command. The samba server is using net-fs/samba-3.6.9. I have tried the unstable version of samba on the other systems with no luck.
Here is the smb.conf from the Samba server( Yes I know it's insecure as hell, but I have very little to fear from people accessing my network due to location)
Code:
# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too
# many!) most of which are not shown in this example
#======================= Global Settings =====================================
[global]

# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name, eg: MIDEARTH
workgroup = ShadowRealm

# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
server string = ShadowStore2

# Security mode. Defines in which mode Samba will operate. Possible
# values are share, user, server, domain and ads. Most people will want
# user level security. See the Samba-HOWTO-Collection for details.
security = share

# This option is important for security. It allows you to restrict
# connections to machines which are on your local network. The
# following example restricts access to two C class networks and
# the "loopback" interface. For more examples of the syntax see
# the smb.conf man page
hosts allow = 192.168.1.

# this tells Samba to use a separate log file for each machine
# that connects
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m

# Put a capping on the size of the log files (in Kb).
max log size = 50

# DNS Proxy - tells Samba whether or not to try to resolve NetBIOS names
# via DNS nslookups. The default is NO.
dns proxy = no

name resolve order = bcast lmhosts wins host
#============================ Share Definitions ==============================
[homes]
comment = Home Directories
browseable = no
read only = no

# NOTE: If you have a BSD-style print system there is no need to
# specifically define each individual printer
[printers]
comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/samba
browseable = no

# Set public = yes to allow user 'guest account' to print
guest ok = no
printable = yes

[storage]
path = /storage/
guest ok = yes
guest only = yes
read only = no
printable = no
public = yes
force create mode = 0777
force security mode = 0777
force directory security mode = 0777
force directory mode = 0755
create mask = 0777

[export]
path = /storage/export/
guest ok = yes
guest only = yes
read only = no
public = yes
delete readonly = yes
force create mode = 0777
force security mode = 0777
force directory security mode = 0777
force directory mode = 0766
create mask = 0755

[samba]
path = /storage/samba/
guest ok = yes
guest only = yes
read only = no
public = yes
force create mode = 0777
force security mode = 0777
force directory security mode = 0777
force directory mode = 0755
create mask = 0777


The testparm comes out with no errors or trouble, though it does say that the security=share has been deprecated.

The addition of "name resolve order = bcast lmhosts wins host" in smb.conf is the result of trolling google for ideas, and was not previously in the file. It's addition has done nothing. I have also ensured that I restarted samba after every change to the conf file. Again with no luck. Of interest when I try to ping any of the systems by name(On any machine, Linux, Windows or Mac), I get weird results. My routing table is:
Code:
Routing Table
Destination IP    Netmask      Gateway    Metric      Interface    Creator
66.78.107.0   255.255.255.0   0.0.0.0   1   WAN   System
0.0.0.0   0.0.0.0   66.78.107.1   15   WAN   System
192.168.1.0   255.255.255.0   0.0.0.0   1   LAN   System
But the pings are
Code:
ping ShadowStore2
PING ShadowStore2.ShadowRealm (67.215.65.132) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from hit-nxdomain.opendns.com (67.215.65.132): icmp_req=1 ttl=57 time=28.0 ms

rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 27.989/28.370/29.103/0.518 ms
b_vance@ShadowRookerie /var/log $ ping ShadowBook 
PING ShadowBook.ShadowRealm (67.215.65.132) 56(84) bytes of data.

4 packets transmitted, 4 received, 0% packet loss, time 3003ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 27.014/28.142/29.528/0.921 ms

Any assistance will be appreciated as I am at my wits end.

EDIT:
It seems to be a change in how my LAN was dealing with the WAN. I fixed the issue by adding the samba servers fixed IP addresses to the various systems /etc/hosts file. Still unsure what caused the change n how things worked, but ths is a doable workaround.

I'd certainly start there. See my blog post: http://blog.realcomputerguy.com/2010/12/samba-and-guest-shares-with-security.html
