Samba stopped working today
 
Samba on my ubuntu linux boxed stopped working today and I don't know what the issue is. My remote computers can no longer access it at it's ip address. When connecting, my pc displays "an error occured while reconnecting to [my server name]...the network name could not be found". It worked perfectly a few hours ago, so i'm stumped. I've restarted smbd, restarted the computer...no luck. I also run ISPconfig which still works, so it looks like it's not an issue of finding the computer on the network. Thanks

Some things I did recently:
-Changed some permissions on folders as root
-while connected to the linux box via samba, my mac went to sleep

netstat -tap:

i fixed the problem by changing 'available' from no to yes under the [MYFILES] section. Any idea what happened here? I have absolutely no recollection of changing the 'available' parameter.
