I started my samba server with a samba.conf taken from a tutorial in this site and everything is working very well, but... I used [global] settings exactly as in the example and made my "netbios name = debian". Now I regret that and wish I had used a more explicit name. / How can I change the "netbios name" ? I edited samba.conf and changed that to "myownname" , but in the Windows clients the connection still appears as "debian".
