You need to edit the smb.conf file.

Code: [Select]
sudo pluma /etc/samba/smb.conf
then add / edit the lines Mark suggested
save and reboot

I'm not sure if a "-" is a valid character in a Windows netbios name, so just add either

netbios name = laptop

or

netbios name = usertwo



Hint -

Running:
Code: [Select]
testparm
should tell you if there are any syntax errors in your smb.conf

I also put netbios on the desktop had a gut feeling and everything on the home network is now OK.

pyNeighborhood is still not working but have found a replacement (see above) via this post.

Thanks as always for your assistance.
