Redhat server  IP 192.168.3.3 255.255.255.0

Share works fine on this subnet

Trying to access on subnet 192.168.2.x 255.255.255.0
ping works fine
router is a firewall - rules open
Windows shares work across same subnets

smb.conf =

[global]
        client schannel = no
        client use spnego = no
        server signing = auto
        hosts allow = 192.168.3. 192.168.2.
        security = SHARE
        dns proxy = no

[TEST]
        comment = TEST DIR
        path = /TEST
        writeable = yes
        guest ok = yes

Are you trying to access via name or IP? What do your iptables rules look like on this samba server?

First test Network issues

1- ping 192.168.3.3

2- telnet 192.168.3.3 445
If this works then there is no network problem we can focus on Samba

Thanks for your help - i re-edited the smb.conf file and its now working - it was as if the host allow was not being registered?
