Ubuntu machine on network not visible

Hi all,

Recently I could set one Ubuntu machine to work as print server, this was the first useful thing I do with Ubuntu other than using it as my main OS.

On the same machine, I want to make something like shared folder or better say, shared folder, and backup server (drive, computer) for all the office users, and all of them r using MS windows.

Although the print server works perfectly, I cant find it on the network using my own Ubuntu box, and sure I cant find it using the windows, OS X boxes.

Samba is there on both Ubuntu boxes, the shared folders r set, but still.. nothing can scan or see the Ubuntu box.

The Ubuntu boxes r always pingable..

Any clue?
